Interesting. The smell was coming from the back-left of the car, and I heard a very harsh "tick tick tick tick" noise too. I was worried that maybe during the ride I had damaged the engine with wrong up-shifts and downshifts (though I believe the computer prevents "miss-shift" damage from happening?).

I did a quick search and members on the forum have said the ticking noise could be normal and related to injectors. Would that be a similar case here or is this enough to warrant a vehicle inspection?
