Weird smell C230 - 05

Hi guys,I noticed a weird smell when I hit hard the gas, when floor it.
I asked around some told me it might be the catalizer, but it's not a sulfuric smell, that u smell from the rear.
Any ideas
It's like a kind of something burning but not burning! ! !
Any ideas?

If it's not the cheap burritos from the taco truck, then probably the catalytic converters are nearing EOL.

Smell of burning? Burning what? Like burning rubber, oil, rotten eggs?

That's the thing I can't determine that, but for sure it's not sulfur...
Might be oil, though not sure !

rotton eggs means your catalyic converter is gone

get under the car and use your hand and hit the exhaust pipes and listen. if u hear noises then your honeycomb fell apart.

did u get a p0420 code? check engine light?

is the cat plugged?

if all of the above is ok then your cat is fine

any white or blue smoke from the tail pipe?

Will check under the car, but no codes at all.
And no smoke from the pipe.
