Hey there riddick,

That rotten egg smell is a problem with your catalytic converter. Too much back pressure is not allowing your engine to run normally.

I'll bet its been getting hot too.

Warning: For your own safety, until this is resolved, do not look under or stick your head under the car with the engine running. I've been in a vehicle when a converter with these same symptoms blew apart at the seam. Made my head hit the roof. If it happened a few minutes earlier I would've gotten a faceful of freshly flattened converter. So be careful.

To tell for sure about the problem, try to get it to an auto parts store that does free code readings from your On Board Diagnostics. There should be errors referencing the engine, O2 sensors and emissions. The exact diagnostic codes with determine your next course of action.

Be safe,

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: rotten egg smell in cab but not all the time

Rotten egg smell means Sulpher is present somewhere. Check for exhaust leaks. this usually means exhaust is creeping into the cab. You may have a blocked or leaking catalytic converter.

Car starts and then immediately shuts off

When you say "bad smell in the air" can you describe it? A rotten smell odor is usually associated with a bad catalytic converter.

Has it been losing power, slowing going up hills, or anything noticeable?

It may be a bad or clogged catalytic converter. Check the oil level in the vehicle. Overfilling can have adverse effects on the catalytic converter and cause premature failure..

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!

Engine light

The "rotten-egg" smell is caused indirectly by the catalytic converter. The main cause is a rich mixture condition from the engine. Your SUV is equipped with a computer controlled engine management system. You can scan your computer for fault or error codes. The information should pinpoint the malfunctioning components. There is an alternate reason for the rotten egg smell. this also can be caused by a over charged battery. if so, make sure the alternator isn't overcharging the battery cell. it will boil the contents causing the egg smell. I recommend a diagnostic run to make sure what this problem is.

please rate and god bless.
