SULPHUR SMELL WHEN STARTING VEHICLE

2008 Subaru Tribeca • 50,000 miles

I'm overdue for an oil change (about 2000 miles). This morning there was a rotten egg (sulphur smell) immediately when I started the car. What do you think it is and is it related to the overdue oil change (there is only 1 quart missing). I'm getting the oil changed tomorrow.

The smell should be from the catalytic converter. It is not related to the overdue oil change but could be related to the missing engine oil.
