100,000 miles..check engine light..engine compartment..passenger side

Resolved Question:

I have a 1995 S32o. Everything is perfect...it just turned 100,000 miles. The check engine light is coming on after about 25 minutes...and when I stop it smells like sulfur from the engine compartment (passenger side). the performance and tengine temps are fine... Any ideas? Also, I lost my cheat sheet on how to check the engine codes with the radio...can you forward the proceedure? Thanks...

Hi, the smell is a symptom of bad Catalytic Convertor(needs replacement)

Retrieving engine codes true the radio I have never heard off. You can phone dealer to verify, it will not cost you anything to ask.
