My 1995 cadillac eldorado was losing power like the car was running out of gas and now smell exhaust


When you say smell like exhaust, does it smell like rotten eggs (sulfur)? If so, could be catalytic converter clogged up.

Whats the problem smells like rotten eggs,no power, car chugs and bogs down ?


Sounds to me like the catalytic converter is shot. The "rotten egg" smell and stalling out is a dead giveaway. The converter is plugged up and cannot let the exhaust out of the tail pipe like it should. The exhaust is building up back pressure in the exhaust system, causing the engine to lose power and stall. Take it to a qualified shop and have the catalytic converter replaced.

The rotten egg smell if it is coming from the exhaust is a very good sign that you catalytic converter has failed or is failing. but a bad or battery that is being overcharged can also make a rotten egg like smell.

Lacking power, funny smell near exhaust and sputters and feels like it is going to stall when stopping for a red light.


Rotten egg smell is usually a bad converter. sweet smell is antifreeze meaning blown head gasket or worse.

Your catalytic converter is plugged up,  If you check the exhaust output at the tailpipe you will find it restricted.

Rotten eggs is usually a good sign your catylic converter has gone bad or is severely clogged. It will smell bad at first and then you will loose power over time.

I need a list of the EGR/Trouble codes for a 1994 Ford SHO Taurus


Sounds like the catalytic converter has gone bad. What happens is you car as you drive will lose power, smell like rotten eggs and stall out. The reason is, the cat. is plugged up and cannot let the exhaust out of the tail pipe like it should. The exhaust is staying in the engine causing it to stall out and loose pwer.
