I have an auto and don't feel a click, but I go for the shifter last. Just have them try it. I assume this happens all the time and not just while parked on a hill or something.

The smell could be anything from an exhaust leak to crap gas.

Do this:

With the windows up turn the vent control to reticulate and see if you still smell anything. If not, turn the vent back on for the dash vents and see if you smell it. If it's what you always smell it's from the engine bay. If you still don't smell it, it's from the underside or exhaust. This could help them figure it out. Don't diagnose the problem just describe the symptoms.

The click you feel is the shift lockout solenoid disengaging. It prevents you from shifting the car out of park if the brake pedal is not depressed. It is a safety feature.

If you have a sulfur smell, first try tank of a different brand of fuel. Some fuels are higher in sulfur content than others.

One thing I've noticed on my car is there is absolutely no residue on the inside of the exhaust pipe tips. This is the cleanest burning engine I've ever had. Heck, this time of year, there's more tree pollen on the outside of the tips than there is anything on the inside.

I burn whatever's cheapest when I need it (premium grade). I've used Shell, Exxon, and Hess/Wilco.
