I just got home from work and when i got outta the truck i smelled something. I noticed the smell as i pulled into the parking lot and even more as i got outta the truck. It smelled just like rotten eggs[xx(][xx(]. I have heard and read that this can be the cat going bad. Has anyone else had this problem. I did a search and came up with cat and 02 sensor issues.
If this is the problem how much am i looking at $$$.

Thanks in advance!!!!

I have heard that certain gasolines that contain hydrogen sulfide, an impurity that gets in during the refining process, is the culprit. If you are running too rich on fuel, it will show up much worse than normal.
