No, it has nott he smoking smell when driving normally. However, I discused with my mechanic (he owns a service and he's my friend, also) andd he said that I shouldn't worry too much. He had the same symptoms on his Mitsubishi Pajero and, when he dismantled the clutch, to replace it, he had the surprise to see that it was mint. So he said that I should wait for it to slip on normal drive and then change it.
