That right you nailed it 100% go to the muffler shop and get it fixed. BUT if you want it is easy to test remove the O2 sensor before the cat and see if there is an improvement in power. If there is then leave them out and that will allow you to safely get to the muffler shop and advod towing it up there.

Smells like rotten eggs but car runs fine


does your car have AC.... ? ac problems can make a eggy smell also a damaged catalytic converter do the same. eggy smell can be the gas from the ac leaking out. you would need to have this check as it can do harm to your lungs..
