Sounds like the catalytic converter is leaking and not sending the fumes out through the exhaust although will get a meyhane smell from time to time especialy when your engine braking towards a stop light or give way.

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

My car has been having a bad rotten egg smell for the past 3 days. It's only in the cabin that it smells like rotten eggs. under the hood no smell and the exhaust smells normal. One more thing to add,...


that smell is usually a sign of the catalytic converter which is the first wide muffler looking thing under the engine after the first pipe from the engine.

Engine light


The "rotten-egg" smell is caused indirectly by the catalytic converter. The main cause is a rich mixture condition from the engine. Your SUV is equipped with a computer controlled engine management system. You can scan your computer for fault or error codes. The information should pinpoint the malfunctioning components. There is an alternate reason for the rotten egg smell. this also can be caused by a over charged battery. if so, make sure the alternator isn't overcharging the battery cell. it will boil the contents causing the egg smell. I recommend a diagnostic run to make sure what this problem is.


please rate and god bless.

Rotten egg smell


Change the Oxygen sensor or circuit. This can cause the catylytic converter to permit the sulphur smelling fumes to go through. i believe that there is a product out there in the market for this very purpose. i don't remember the name. but you can ask. It is are sold at auto parts stores
