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.

I just bought a 1996 camry and the fan sounds loud and it smells like something is burning, yet the temperture is normal and no smoke comes out. Is that Normal? First Toyota, so I"m not sure if the...

Check the fan on broken blades - even a small part missing can cause unusual sounds. If parts are new / serviced - smell can be due to labels getting hot and emitting slight burning smell. Classic are exhaust pipes with partnumber labels left on there. If he smell stays, something in the interior might come from a crash car which was partly burned.
