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

Smells like rotten eggs but car runs fine


does your car have AC.... ? ac problems can make a eggy smell also a damaged catalytic converter do the same. eggy smell can be the gas from the ac leaking out. you would need to have this check as it can do harm to your lungs..

Car runs ok, but gets hot and rotten egg smell comes out of the exhaust


If car runs okay with egg smell, its normal and working the way it should, if car is running poorly and the rotten egg smell has gotten worse, its a sign that your exhaust catalytic converter will need to be replaced. good luck!

When i accelerate up a hill i smell a foul odor like rotten eggs. then my car sounds like a straining noise i believe its my transmission going bad and a sound from the rear leaving me to believe that its...


no the rotten egg smell is the catalytac convertor stopping up. smelled it many times not to know.it will slow or even make your engine die because the motor has to have air to run! as the engine operates the valves are opening and closing and sucks air from the rear through the exhaust,or if not when you go through a whole lot of water while driving how come the engine dies? because it sucks water in through the exhaust pipe up to the motor. have your convertor replaced and that crazy stuff will go away. thank you for choosing fixya,com

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?

I have a 99 Alero and it is missing out bad. It sputters when you drive and it dies when you accelerate. The car has a bad smell also. The gas peddle goes to the floor but the car don't go. Any ideas??


bad smell kind of like rotten eggs? if yes, your catalytic converter is bad, it plugged up and is now restricting exhaust flow causing power loss.

Car died rotton egg smell


Not sure if engine coolant smells like rotten egs when it burns inside the cylinders , but it sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. Coolant and/or oil could be getting inside combustion chamber. Another possibility is that the catyletic converter might have broken up and colapsed onto the screen where it goes into the exhaust. Might give the rotten egg smell and block the exhaust enough to cause backpressure sufficient to cause the engine to run poorly too.
Try putting your palm over the exhaust pipe , if the exhaust is coming out in pulses (pop ,pop,pop) thats normal , if it is just slowly flowing out with no noticable pulses , I would check into the cat converter problem.

1992 gmc sonoma pick up egr system diagnostic procedures. help?!


Exhaust Gas Recirculation systems do not cause you symtoms, when the EGR fails it leaks exhaust gases into the cylinders, this causes a very very rough idle and a stall, the valve gets hot when it leaks at idle. Run a self test on the ECM and try to get any trouble codes stored in it, Kragen auto I hear does this for free.
