If it's a sulfur smell, or a rotton egg smell, you probably have a bad catalytic converter.

    Surfur smell comes from not enough nickel in the catalyst, Cat converter is probably just fine, just the emission engineers cut cost on the precious metals contained in the catalyst substrate.

My 1996 Nissan Maxima has a milky colour engine oil & white smoke from the exhaust.


you probably have a leaking head, water is getting into the oil. if it does not stop, then try some engine seal, and engine honey. if that doesnt work, be prepared for some major work.

You have years to change the belt. It's a good idea to change the belt at about 100,000 - 120,000 miles, whichever comes first. Hope it helps!

Car runs rough when it does run. then in about 5 miles it just dies no power at all? the battery is new so is alt. new plugs and wires ? it just dies and needs a jump. soon as its off it wont start again...


Have your mass air flow sensor cleaned/serviced., then your catylictic coverter.you can chk but takes two people. one at the tailpe and the other at the key. The moment the engine is turned of, the exhaust shout stop.Using a tissue see if the exhaust continues bet in a drifting manner. Note any odor of rotten egg or sulphur smells. Listen for ant wheezing coming from the tail pipe while the engine is running. This is rhe more probable cause. Good luck -Ned
