It does seem that you have a misfire issue and as there's an odor from the exhaust, it would seem to be fuel and maybe oil burning in the exhaust which would also be in the catalytic converter. This problem could be related to fuel, spark, or a mechanical issue. You should have this diagnosed & repaired. You're now on your way to an expensive converter replacement.

Thank you ? I mean Thank you for the info about where to start not sure i can afford to go down the rest of that road, the converter is not cheap but again thank you for your help and time I will use it.
