@nikitaLchikita,
How did it smell. Electrical, maybe like burning oil, squirrel, or what? With luck, it was just an oil leak that managed to get onto a hot exhaust manifold. Squirrels don't usually heat up that quick.

exahust gas leaking from the manifold?

I doubt its anything burning from the heat of the engine. 10 seconds is not long enough for the engine to heat up sufficiently.

A cold start could see unburnt combustion gasses leaking though.

OK...was it smoke or steam, perhaps?

After 2 mos?

Might just be condensation evaporating off the exhaust manifold.

@nikitaLchikita,
It wont be wise to say anything without having a view of the issue. Consult the professionals once.

@e4smokecanada,
After 5 YEARS, the thread author has probably sold the Caddy, bought himself a Prius, wears coconut fibre sandals, taken up yogic levitation and lives solely on a diet of Tofu and sunflower seed.

Ah, the days when people could own a Caddy and produce great clouds of smoke without a shred of guilt. All gone.

Sigh.
