If it just happened there may be some line or other debris in the prop. Hot plastic smell not in the engine compartment? Binding cutlass bearing or again, plastic bag or poly prop rope bound around shaft? Not sure if blocked exhaust would come on so quickly unless a crimp in the hose just happened?
