There are many things that can cause this problem and it would take too long to try to diagnose without the proper equipment, I.E. OBD2 Scanner. There are just too many engine controls that could cause a misfire. You will have to take it into a shop for an engine diag. This will probably cost you in the range of 150-200, this price does not include the solution, that is entirely seperate. A scanner needs to be hook up to zero in on the problem area, and from there the problem can be tested appropriately.

I would get the car in to a mechanic right away. Sounds like the converter might be plugged. This has been known to cause car fires.

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.

The exhaust system could be blocked between the engine and the tail pipe. The fuel mixture could be too rich or too lean.
Is the check engine light on ?
Can you rev the engine up in park ?
