Question about Cars & Trucks
You probably got a plugged catalytic converter and the trannys going bad attempting to drive faster. If there's a knock in the lower end it's bearings. Grinding could also be coming from brakes. You may have a piston seized up in the calipers.

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.

If the switch lights up when you turn it on but the seat doesnt get hot, it is most likely the heating element in the seat. If the switch doesnt light up, you have a power or ground issue.
