88 GTA Starting,surging,rotten egg smell

I have the same starting problems as every one else. How ever it also surges during acceleration and has power losses also. sometimes the car totally dies when I remove my foot from the gas pedal.
And when ever I go through a parking lot or down a drive way at idle speed I can lightly touch the gas pedal and get the sound of like a fuel pump coming from the kick panel near the ECM
Anybody?????

Problem

Have you changed your fuel filter? My car was bogging during hard accelerations and i changed the filter and it took care of the problem.

Rotten egg smell usually is indicative of a bad catalytic converter(s). Have it checked, probably clear up some of your other problems .
