I think what you might be smelling is transmission. I recently had the tran fluid flushed in my ford truck and for about a week or two if had a burnt smell on start up. The dealer over filled. When I inquired if there was a leak they seemed dumbfounded.

I don't think you'd be smelling trans fluid unless it was leaking, I changed my fluid tons of times and never smelled anything, unless it leaked out on the exhaust! I even burnt the fluid withy tq converter stopped locking up, still no smell

Yea I got to think overfilled means it spilled everywhere. I might be one of your catalytic converters about to go bad
