Three main causes: 1) fuel with excessive sulfur content; didn't really
believe it when a tech told me, but switching brands did help me once.
2) one or both O2 sensors shot => overrich mixture, raw fuel into cat and
resulting smell. 3) cat(s) is(are) shot; do you have any "death rattle" sounds
from below? Many of the early V6 cars had poorly-manufactured driver's side
cats which blow apart right around 55k miles... BTDT.
