Replaced Filter

My 2001 4runner began to have this smell after an oil change at the local 'car care place' -- they also replaced the air filter. I put up with this smell for about a month before I read the comments on this site and decided to go out and purchase/replace my air filter (making it an air flow problem). It appears to help...not sure if it is completely solved, but it smells a lot better.

Seafoam clean-out

Has anyone run Seafoam through their engine to clean out the cats with success?

My 16 Limited is starting to have that smell also. I have about 3000 km on it. It was bought in June. Where I live they have switch to winter gas. I did not have an issue this summer. Not sure if it is normal. Might be something to do with the winter gas.

Just a note: I have not heard of one case of sulfur smell from California 4runner owners.
I'm your first case, 15yrs later!!!
