    i would say that the catalic converter colapsed, loss of power,pinging and bad fuel milage is a really good sign of the converter.

    I dont have an answer, but I have an 2007 impala ss and it is doing the same thing. My service traction control light is on as well as the check engine which blinks on and off with. It rides rough with this vowl smell which smells like rotten eggs it also misfire. I took it to the dealer the second time it happened to me and GM claim that there was not a fix for it until Jan. or Feb of this year, if I'm lucky. The car is now in the shop for the same problem.
