lol its a auto so why change gears. ive never got why auto drivers do that, unless towing.
Try drving around with it in drive for a few days and see if the smell is still there. that way you can say it is from changing the gears.

when you burn your clutch pack out or destroy your torque converter, do a conversion to a 5 or 6 speed manual and get happy. As for your exhaust smell, have a look at the seal under the console or the boot/rear door seals. Autos are not designed for slowing down, that's why most cars these days have really good brakes
