I forgot, is a Suzuki Vitara 4 cyl, 2.0, and not always give me that problem, only when i drive for long period of time, then if I try to start the car before gets cold than, explosions and bad smell, after 3 or 4 times works fine, is only when I start the car, not when driving, a mechanich told me probably the catalytic converter need to be replaced, any ideas?
thank you!
