Has your vehicle got a Check Engine/Service Engine Soon Light illuminated on the dash? The misfire you have at idle is resulting in raw fuel entering the exhaust and it sounds like what you are smelling is the catalytic converter trying to cope with and neutralize the excess gasoline. This will damage your catalytic converter and result in a very expensive repair if you don't take care of it very soon.

The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.
A thumping heard and felt in the floor is often caused by failing engine mounts. A failing mount allows too much movement of the engine, and will require replacement.
