When I drive my Bmw 323I E90 is shaking after driving for 500m, and then it dont want to drive fast because of the shaking. It also gives a rotten egg like smell. Whats the problem


Rotten egg smell from exhaust is typically caused by sulfur in the catalytic converter burning off. That can be caused by driving the car harder than normal, or harder than previously, making the converter heat up. If you have exhaust leaking into the car, you will smell it.

We will need a better characterization of the "shaking" to help you solve it. Does the shaking stop when you stop, or does it continue? If it stops, it's either in the drivetrain or wheels. If it doesn't stop, engine or trans.

I have a diesel engine that expells white smoke for 5 to 10 miniuts after start up? The exhaust also smells rich with fuel? I bought the truck used and am trying to fix the problems! Please help.


When an engine expels black smoke it means that the piston rings are going and is consuming oil. And when the color of smoke is white the engine is consuming more fuel. Both are harmful. Black to the engine and pocket while white to the pocket. It seems that the injector need careful attention.
Cold engine does expel white smoke initially. When the temperature rises to normal working temperature the smoke stops. This is normal in your case. 5 to 10 minutes to warm up is normal for any diesel engine. But any thing more than that needs attention.

Car died rotton egg smell


Not sure if engine coolant smells like rotten egs when it burns inside the cylinders , but it sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. Coolant and/or oil could be getting inside combustion chamber. Another possibility is that the catyletic converter might have broken up and colapsed onto the screen where it goes into the exhaust. Might give the rotten egg smell and block the exhaust enough to cause backpressure sufficient to cause the engine to run poorly too.
Try putting your palm over the exhaust pipe , if the exhaust is coming out in pulses (pop ,pop,pop) thats normal , if it is just slowly flowing out with no noticable pulses , I would check into the cat converter problem.

2001 chevy silverado engine ''sputters'' and is losing power-


Backpressure is the result of any obstruction in exhaust flow. Both the converter and muffler create a certain amount of backpressure by design. If the cat becomes plugged, exhaust cannot properly escape and can cause an extreme lack of power. (Engine can't draw in what it can't expell out the other end) Usually the rotten egg smell is also accompanied by a "wheezing" sound in the cat as well.
