SOURCE: engine light stays on

That is sulfur smell.

Sulfur smell it is not necessarily indication of problems if not accompained by an eccessive fuel consumption.

Your catalytic converter is plugged up,  If you check the exhaust output at the tailpipe you will find it restricted.
Let me know if I  can assist further.

SOURCE: smell of rotten eggs, and smoke coming from under

when you have fitted new battery i would advise you to check the alternator charge rate anything above 14.5 volts battery will over charge and will get hot this will damage it if it is over charging you will need a new alternator or a new voltage regulator fitting to your alternator

05 outback code er55 car misses and smokes black exhaust smells like eggs what is wrong


black smoke indicates that it is over fuelling, probably from a faulty injector
the eggs smell is hydrogen sulphide ( rotten egg gas) and is the cat converter doing its job ( same as new car exhaust smell)

Car runs ok, but gets hot and rotten egg smell comes out of the exhaust


If car runs okay with egg smell, its normal and working the way it should, if car is running poorly and the rotten egg smell has gotten worse, its a sign that your exhaust catalytic converter will need to be replaced. good luck!

My 2002 Pontiac GP V6 smells like rotten eggs from the exhaust


The rotten egg smell if it is coming from the exhaust is a very good sign that you catalytic converter has failed or is failing. but a bad or battery that is being overcharged can also make a rotten egg like smell.

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.
