You have a missfire in the motor and raw fuel is contaminating the cat converter. Get it checked out before you damage the cat and require replacing it.

Hello,

Yep this is not a o2 sensor problem at all. Replace the open coil which will cause the problem. When a cylinder misfires it causes the system to go lean which the computer will richen up causing the rotten egg smell.

Please let us know what happens

Cheers, Ken
