First of All Get a Engine Diagostics and see if there are any problems and fix them from a Prof Machenic If your car has not been tuned then change the spark plug, spark plug wires, fuel line filter. If this does not solve then change the distributer cap. That should solve the basic prolems of Shaking engine. Also check for the engine oil levels from time to time for the exhaust smell. (if car is old do put the engine oil treatmet like MOTOR UP, and other...which are available in the market)

Smell of antifreeze but no leak?

My 3.8 Impala had a slight antifreeze smell from the engine compartment, and was much worse at the exhaust It was also missing, the problem was the upper intake plenum. I know that on this motor it is a common problem, and can quickly progress to the point of the car no longer running. You could have a small leak anywhere that is evaporating before it can drip.

Why would you have an exhaust smell in your car before you start the engine then once the car is driven the smell is nonexistent?

Any exhaust smell in a car cab indicates an exhaust leak somewhere along the line. Th reason you don't smell it while driving is because the air flowing air under the car is blowing the exhaust gasses away before it can rise into the cab. After the car sits for a while, the gasses seep out of the leak, and up into the cab.
