confused stinky exhaust

for some reason my exhaust smells really bad. The smell seems to be really strong. I just changed my oil and the smell is still there. I don't know what's wrong.

Re: stinky exhaust

If it smells like rotten eggs - sulphur, it probably means your catalytic converter is dead or on the way out. Either that or you're running a little rich. Get it checked out at a Dealer.
