No Acceleration and a Funny Smell | Wichita Auto Care

Tracy’s Automotive will pick up your car and return it to you thoroughly cleaned after it’s been serviced or repaired.

You were driving back from Towne East Square yesterday when you smelled something like rotten eggs. At first, you thought it was coming from outside the car but it never went away and followed you home. You also noticed that your car was slow to react when you pressed down on the accelerator.

Those are two symptoms of a bad catalytic converter, according to The catalytic converter’s job is to reduce the amount of toxic gases found in car and truck emissions. They “contain  a honeycomb-like interior composed of materials with chemical profiles that actually change the makeup of exhaust gasses passing through them. They also collect residue and can clog over time,” says.

Among the symptoms of a bad, or clogged, catalytic converter: A smell of rotten eggs, a lit check engine light, a failed emissions test, rough performance or failure to accelerate immediately, misfires, and poor gas mileage.
