Question about Cars & Trucks
Wife drives down our hill to mail box, comes back up and shuts car off. Less than 5 minutes of running the engine. The garage stinks when this happens. Open the door and take the car for a ride of a longer duration and no problem? Why?
The short run period is not allowing the engine to come to operating temperature nor allowing the cat converter to light up and do it's job. This behaviour will reduce the life of you vehicle by 75% over the expected life span and will cost big dollars very shortly. It would be more beneficial both financially and health wise to stroll to the letter box.

you have a sensor acting up on your motor have the code read at any shop for about $25 and they will tell you exactly what sensor is going out and needs to be replaced

SOURCE: 2006 Toyota 4Runner Sulfur smell
I noticed going from a Higher Grade gasoline as well as making sure I change my motor oil on a regular basis (3,000-5,000 mi)to solve this problem. When the car isn't driven at a high RPM for a while, and you go to a quick acceleration it causes this smell.
