A bad EGR valve can cause this smell.

Or defective O2 sensor.

Try a lower temperature thermostat and check your air-dam. It could also be your radiator/antifreeze.

I would check the fuse, it's in the driver door access panel. after that, blower itself, bad switch in dash. jr

One thing that could be wrong with a 2013 Chrysler 200 when it loses power and smells like rotten eggs is the catalytic converter needs to be replaces. When a car has a rotten egg smell, this is usually the cause.

It could be your fuel filter needs replaced or possibly your fuel pump itself is on its way out. I would try replacing the fuel filter first.

The spare is under the car, in the rear held by a hanger assembly. Same as a lot of trucks. (it could have been removed look for the bracket).

You may want to consult a veterinarian. One common cause of this is from eating old apples. Apples that are partially rotten may have fermented to produce alcohol, and this could cause staggering.

Crack in intake or exhust, or belt glazing- Check all the intake and exhust bolts.

Many things can cause a rotten egg taste and smell when belching followed by bad diarrhea. You could have eaten something that did not settle well or you might have food poisoning.
