Question: Engine lost power and smell and fumes are coming from exahust.

I have had a 1998 Sienna for 2.5 yrs, after first owner. I do oil changes every 4500 kms. I started the car yesterday in the cold at -23 and started the heater right way since windows were icy inside. After few minutes, a smell came out and engine started loosing power. I drove for some 30 minutes and the engine did not have the same power. The smell continue and once I parked I noticed some form of fumes coming out of the exhaust.

I appreciate your help, thank you.
