A bit of an odd one this, at the same point on my way into and home from work, my car briefly smells like an oil refinery! It only happens in this place and disappears if I put the air con on recycle.

I though that the smell was from something outside but I can't smell it if I wind the windows down.

The place where this happens is 10 mins into my journey and at a long 1 in 20 descent.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

engine braking or are you on the anchors at this point ?

because of what you've said and given it happens at the same point on a decline using both brakes and engine braking...
is it still the original clutch ? 56 plate is a early model.....and if it was brake related then you'd smell something more often,

try flooring it uphill in a high gear.....just to be sure
