Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Chris. Welcome and thanks for asking your question!
Can I get the vin#?
After a minute the fuel odor and smoke concern are done, correct?
Is the noise at idle or under load or when cruising?
Any repairs so far to try and address this?

See if the below TSB maybe your noise concern.
On the startup smoke and odor, it is normal to have a faint fuel odor as well as some fuel smoke or condensation smoke, due to the loop status running rich to get the engine started like a choke would as well as to heat up the converters and O2 sensors.
However faint is the key word, it should be minimal and in your case it sounds excessive. I believe a fuel injector bleed own test needs to be performed. I think while parked overnight you have an injector bleeding down and leaving a pool of fuel on the piston.
An injector concern can also cause a knock or ping type noise, so I suggest you address the odor, and smoke issue prior to addressing the noise concern.
yes after a min. odor & smoke gone thanks
