Your catalytic converter is likely dying. Doesn't affect the car but you will probably fail your next emisssions inspection.

Foul odor in vehicle while driving just started


Usually indicates a bad catalytic converter. Make sure you're sitting down when you get a quote for a new one.

Catalyc converter odor


Worn out converter from too much fuel, causing
it to overheat over time.

While the converter may still be somewhat effective
& you may not have any check lights on,I would check
fuel trim & also replace any front or upstream O2 Sensors
over 100,000 miles. Spark Plugs over 3 years old

What your trying to find out, is if an injector is leaking or
an O2 Sensors has a slow switching count causing a rich
fuel mixture.

Any vacuum leaks will cause a lean condition & the computer
will drive the fuel pulse or trim, rich to compensate

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.

Car had been running fine, backfired once and lost a little power momentarily. Parked 24 hours,started right up but backfired and died. Now starts easily but dies without intense pressure on gas pedal.


Sounds like it's fouled a spark plug this happens as the plug wires fail and the power goes to ground instead of firing the fuel. The timing belt could have skipped time but the engine may run smooly but have very little power.65158335.jpgThe plug wires will act like what you say too.340881376.jpgThe boots get electrcal holes in them and they fire to the head instead of the fuel mixture and then it fires sometimes and throws everything of and they run very badly or not at all.

2.0 ford engine has new timing belt idles rough but can run smooth while driving has a very foul odor coming from exhaust and has severe blow back when you remove oil filler cap


Sounds like your off timing. Make sure that your timing gears are set on the marks properly. The foul odor your smelling may be because your car is running rich.
