Probably a brake pad dragging.
If you do the repair yourself, check the inner rotor surfaces (hidden by the brake shields) and replace the rotors if scored. Make certain the guide bolts (which mount the caliper and allow it to slide laterally to equalize pad pressures) are clean and well lubricated with a silicone grease.

check O2 Sensors, add a product called Ametech restore at next oil change, this does wonders for your vehicle, improved my BHP & MPG threefold , also as you say it smells bad (Like rotten eggs?) this will be the catalytic converter, either replace or add a product called cataclean to the fuel & take it for a run, It literally cleans all the **** fro the catalytic converter removing that rotten egg 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.

Rough idling, poor gas milege


Usually the rotten egg smell is a clogged CAT. Is the engine light on and if so did you retrieve any codes?

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.
