    Im sure 99% of the people know where the smell comes from and what causes it. What would the solution be? If he puts a new one on he will be at a loss of a converter and posible labor costs and parts.

Your catalytic converter is plugged up,  If you check the exhaust output at the tailpipe you will find it restricted.
Let me know if I  can assist further.

Husband changed the alternator on my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, yesterday it was idling really low and wanted to die, now today it's smoking out the tailpipe and smells like eggs, and when driving it has


i would check the throttle body for sure. make sure the "butterfly flap" isnt all gummed up with carbon. if it is then wipe it down with a dry rag or a very little bit of soap and water. make sure you dont leave any soap residue. also check in that general area to make sure all connections are good, no vacuum leaks and that everything is plugged in snug the way its supposed to be. fianlly, it would be a good idea to check all fuses under hood and etc for proper fitting and make sure they are all good. let me know what happens, im here to help. regards,

Obd light on, idle rough, smell, no throttle


The obd light with tell specifically what it is, is it gas or rotten egg - the latter means catalytic converter, gas smell probably flooded or not firing on one or more cylinders, need more details. Also, if the light is flashing it's warning of catalytic damage - raw fuel hitting the cat, smell could be heat from cat trying to burn off raw fuel,it will glow red hot.

My 2005 chevy malibus check engine light came on it's running really rough. It also smell like rotten eggs. I have tried the gas cap thing and checked all thefluid levels and still nothing


its your alternator voltage regular failed and your alternator is isnt being limited to 12 vots and its overpowering your electric system. the smell of rotten eggs is your battery over heating and the acid inside is boiling giving off the sulfur based smell. this is unhealthy for you to breath and is a sure sign that your car needs to be repaired. you need to replace your alterantor and battery immeditly or it coud damage your vehicals computer. The new altenator will have a new regulator in it and you will be good.

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?
