    Since you want to take a long drive, I would have it checked out before leaving, better than getting stuck in the sticks somewhere in nowhere...
    Get a friend to accelerate in tight circles while you are near the ground in the middle of the radius. Youd be amazed how different a location can sound when outside compared to in.

    For the rubber smell, buy a 5lb extinguisher and ignore it until it becomes worse, or better. What type of dirt? Damp loam smells horrible on exhaust.

    Solved! the burning smell has mostly gone away. I have no idea what it was really from. The grinding noise was a wheel bearing issue. it was not making a rumble noise at highway speeds, only when accelerating at low speeds or turning to the left! very odd and thank you to everyone that helped!

    Good to know. Did you replace the bad bearing?
