If your battery light came on, and you smelled burning rubber, it could be that your belt that drives the alternator, which charges your battery is broken or flipped upside down. Do not drive with the battery light on or else you will stop dead when the battery does not have enough charge in it to keep the car running. If you decide to drive and not follow my advice, then be sure all extra electrical power is off eg. radio, fan, DVD, lights etc.
could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.
SOUND LIKE ALTERNATOR SHAFT BEARING FAILING CAUSING ALTERNATOR PULLEY LOCK OR PUT DRAG ON DRIVE BELT CAUSING BURN RUBBER SMELL OR DRIVE BELT LOOSE CAUSES BELT SLIPPAGE MAKE BELT RUB AND BURN.WHEN YOU SMELL RUBBER BELT BURN SMELL WATCH OUT DRIVE IS GOING TO BREAK.
Is the engine light on? If not it could be mechanical. The engine sounds like it is suffocating. This could be because of your catalytic converter, air or fuel filter. Take a look at the vehicles repair/maintenance history and go from there. If the car has over 100k miles then you may need the CAT.
go to Pep Boys and Auto Zone and have the code read for free. and fix it now, as it doesn't sound like something you can wait on.
Also the oil change had absolutely nothing to do with the problems you are having now.
Cars cost money, and it doesn't sound like you are keeping up with the maintenance on this one, sadly you'll pay more in the end.
