if not, do you have an aftermarket header?

Once I hit my woman real hard in the backseat. There was the smell of latex and woman juice in there for a good week or so.

If you have all your cats still, then it is the gas you put in the car, i have noticed this gas a lot at Exxon/Shell a lot more then any where else and it is just poor gas. --try Chevron have only got that smell once from Chevron a long time ago...

its not "wat" you should do, but what you should do

i can't see how you could have a bad catalytic, especially on a 2002, especially if you don't have a check engine light. if you don't have a CEL, its fine

1) do you have a header?

2) do you have any mods that are causing you to run rich?

3) is your car VERY new? did you break it in properly? are you driving it VERY hard?

It IS something you did, guaranteed...

It happens to me also............. :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: it really pisses me off, hopefully itz only becoz the car is new, my car is a 2002 and done 8700 miles..is that new? But i dont think is a major corcern in terms of the engine problem..........
