By holding the throttle to the floor - it puts the Fuel Management Computer in "Clear Flooded Engine" mode - it shuts down the fuel.
The rattle could be detonation. You really need to do some troubleshooting / Fault Codes etc. Troubleshooting may vary a little depending on which engine you have. There are several reasons that could cause the excess fuel / flooding.

2010 dodge avenger 2.4L motor seemed like I ran out of gas and stalled wouldn't start so I poured gas til it was full then everytime I try to start it it smells like gas n has a hard time starting


Camshaft position sensor. It needs to know which cylinder is needing fuel, so it can fire the injectors at the correct time. It must have failed you. It should not be too difficult to replace or very expensive.

White smoke from the tail pipe is caused by moisture in the engine being burned off. Some is normal on a cold engine but the rattle and amount of smoke you describe are a sure sign of a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the cylinders.

the regulator is bad or clogged fuel screen or just leaking/loosing fuel prime. try to key it up a few times to build prime before starting. no matter u need to replace the pump if its not holding 55psi at the fuel rail.

Were is the trans control located in my vehicel for a 97 dodge avenger?


It should be on the side of the transmission that faces the radiator.Down on the right hand side under the hood. It will have a group of wires attached to it with a 10mm bolt through the harness. The module itself is attached with separate bolts. If you remove it you will probably need new gaskets and it will leak fluid onto the floor under it so put something down.
