Hey, would it be unlikely that a catalytic converter start ****ting the bed at 20,000 miles (2002 OBW)? When I came home from doing some errands tonight I noticed a very faint rotten egg smell as I got out of the car.

did you have the ac on ? if so there is stuff you can buy , to spray into the vents , my 97 obw did the same thing , all the water from the ac is not all drained out , is this the first the ac has been on for awhile ?

Actually, it was outside the car and I had backed down into my driveway, so I thought I may have been looming in some exhaust when I got out. was questioning what in relation to the catalytic converter causes this smell and if the converter was on its way out...

The most obvious answer is: smelt it delt it.

The most common cause of this is the fuel itself . Some are blended with higher sulfur levels , hence rotten egg smell . Try gas from another brand & see what happens .:cool:
