Its possible the problem is the cat, or it could be bad gas.
Have you tried switching to a different brand of fuel ?
And the cat may be covered by the dealer warranty.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. Yes, I've tried several different brands of fuel with no success. I bought it used about three months ago so no warranty unfortunately. "

    The catalytic converter is part of the emissions system which has a 7 yr 70,000 mile factory warranty. Check with the dealer before you spend any money.

    I bet its your battery giving off the smell. Replace it to resolve the problem.

My 1995 cadillac eldorado was losing power like the car was running out of gas and now smell exhaust


When you say smell like exhaust, does it smell like rotten eggs (sulfur)? If so, could be catalytic converter clogged up.

2002 sunfire no power to fuel pump ,fuses and relays are fine what could it be???


rotten egg smell is hydrogen sulfide from catalytic converter not burning all hydrocarbons and or poor air fuel mixture., you may have to trace out power wire lead that it is getting power to fuel pump, as well as ground wire that control pump. when you say relays are good do you hear them activate when you turn key on , switch relay out with knowen good one .,you can try a little starting fluid if it runs on that you know all other electrical is performing well , then back to plan A .

2008 Kia Rio poor acceleration and rotten egg smell. Changed air filter and spark plugs with Busch platinum plugs.


rotten egg smell is attributed to unburned fuel reaching the catalytic converter. There may be an exhaust leak or intake manifold leak that is telling computer to add more fuel then car is capable of burning in cylinders or you could have a to cold of spark plugs hope this helps you solve your problem

When running, the Navigator has a rotten egg smell and misses.


The rotten egg smell is because the engine is not properly burning and processing the fuel and exhaust gases. The first culprit to suspect is bad catalytic converters. But since you are also experiencing misfires you can probably start with a tune up. And clean the fuel injectors. You can try running some Techron through the gas tank. Then have your vehicle scanned for error codes. Most auto parts stores will scan your codes for you.

If your scan does not indicate anything and you still have the egg smell, you probably need to replace one or more catalytic converters.

Take a look at this video on how to try to clean catalytic converters before buying new ones...

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

I have a 2000 Lincoln ls smells like rotten eggs. What could it b?


This is usually caused by the catalytic converter on the front of your exhaust system usually when its new and when you put your foot flat down on the accelerator. If you have this smell constantly, change your usual fuel supplier, or add an additive when you put fuel in it, quality of fuel also has an affect.

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?

Rotten egg smeel out of exhaust pipe


The “rotten egg smell” that you mentioned is usually caused by fuel mixture in the engine that is too rich. The catalytic converter may be faulty but before you replace it, the “too rich” fuel mixture needs to be corrected. When the mixture in the engine is to rich, the cat can become very hot, in return, producing this smell.

please rate and god bless.
