Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
I was driving to work in my 2001 Santa Fe manual when power went almost completely. Hardly any acceleration and when I stopped after a few minutes there was a very strong smell (rotten eggs). What might the problem be?
One of the things that it could be is that the catalytic converter has rotted away internally. The rust and particle will then clog your muffler causing loss of power. I ran into this at about 140,000 miles on mine. That could be the source of your problem

When was your last tune up? Need the computer on it. The rotten egg smell is way to rich of a gas air mix or burning too much fuel.
Throttle position sensor, oxygen sensor, map sensor or vacuum hose to the sensor is open, shorted fuel injectors, tune-up stuff like cap rotor plugs and wires, fuel pressure regulator all need to be checked for propper operation.
