You either have a faulty battery or it is being over charged by alternator.
Have the output voltage checked, maybe faulty regulator.

Car will not start without a jump and there is a smell of sulfur coming from front of car.


Julia
The car will not start because your battery is now faulty. The bad smell from the front of the car is the battery overheating. Being able to jump start the car off another battery is indicative of a bad battery in this case..

The battery is emitting hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas and you will also find corrosion on your battery terminals.

When the battery is replaced , as it now must be, it is very important to to check the entire charging system on the vehicle.

Your alternator or voltage regulator may be faulty and it is important to ensure the charging system will not start over charging the new battery once it is fully charged.

Engine stalling


The sulfur smell is usually low grade gas or a problem with the catalytic converter.
In your case I would go for bad gas, especially if the problem just started happening recently. You can try adding premium to the tank and drive it out. You may have to replace the fuel filter once or twice if the gas has water or other contamination.

Can i jump start an audi a6 2005


On the 2005 Audi A6 3.2 (6 cylinder) the battery is stored in the right rear trunk, under the trunk floor lid. Note: To jump start the car, you simply raise the engine hood, and look in the upper left corner of the engine compartment, just slightly below the plastic cover. There you will see connections that lead to the battery and are specifically designed for jumping (or charging) the battery. You will need to lift up gently on a reddish brown cover which is protecting the positive terminal. The negative terminal (black) is not covered.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to jump the battery directly. The battery could explode and you could get sulfuric acid on your face and in your eyes, which would be bad. Very bad.

High idle and rough idle.


Sounds like a serious vacuum leak to me. Can you hear any air rushing under the hood when it's idling? Wiggle all your hoses around while its running and listen for a hiss. If it was a sensor his scanner should have picked it up, and if the fuel pump was no good, it wouldn't run at all. Aim a timing light at the crank mark. If it's jumping back and forth, your timing chain has jumped.

Sulfur smell coming from my 2004 chevy colorado wont start unlss i jump it


You have a bad battery and it needs to be replaced. The rotten egg or sulfer smell is coming from the acid in the battery. I would not continue to jump the vehicle as the battery could explode.

Same symptoms, sulfur smell + battery problems on 2001 Durango


possible voltage regulator is faulty (in the alternator) and boiling the battery. Since the battery has sulphuric acid in it, that would give you the sulpher smell. Get your mechanic to test the voltage/amps output from the alternator.

2000 Focus Zetec-rough idle, very rough under load.


you haven't said if its petrol or diesel so i'm assuming its petrol since your smelling sulfur sounds if you have a misfire causes could be plugs,leads or ign coil i suspect its ign coil these are common to go.
