    Totally off topic and yeah I realize this is an old post, but... Are you the same T Averill I knew? Last saw you I guess around 1998, lived in Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa?

Either your battery has packed up or the alternator is overcharging the battery ,either way something is wrong so please ask your local mechanic to have a look for you as the gases given off can explode ,i cannot tell from afar wheither its the battery or the alternator from afar .

Hi what you are smelling is the clutch slipping this smells like that i think you will need to get it checked out to see if you need a new one, but normally an adjustment is all that is needed if it is not hydraulic if it is hydraulic you will need it replacing hope this helps

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!

My 2002 Pontiac GP V6 smells like rotten eggs from the exhaust


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.

Rotten egg smell from exhaust; vehicle only has 31,105 miles (2009 Saturn Vue V6 FWD)


sulfur smell is almost always the catalytic converter, it's not old enough to need one but that doesn't mean it's not bad. i've seen other GM products with the same problem, take it to a muffler shop and get it tested.

Either a module or fuel pump possibly. If you smell rotten egg smell when you get out after it does it? The cateletic convertor can be clogging up

My 1997 Saturn SL1 exhaust smells like rotten eggs, even after being driven 20 miles. It had sat for a while before today, when I bought it. Oxygen sensorwas replaced yesterday, and otherwise, it runs...


replace your catalytic convertor. you can go to a smog shop and have them perform a "cat efficiency test" and see what they tell you or simply go to a muffler shop have them install one.

Won't start. Seems like no power is getting to the starter. Also smelled a little electrical smoke.


You could have a bad battery, is there a hydrogen sulfide smell ( rotten eggs)? Try a new battery if it is more than a couple years old.

Rotten egg smell after new plugs and wires seems to miss now


did he gap the plugs properly? sulfur smell comes from excess fuel being dumped into the exhaust (catalytic converter). Could be the coil, or improperly gapped plugs. If the wires were out of order, there would be a misfire.
