What causes the check engine light to come on?

The check engine light is triggered by failures in the emission control system. Fire under the vehicle indicate possible problem with overheating the Catalyst due to excess fuel getting to the catalytic converter. Have the codes read and get the diagnosis done. It will get worse unless it is fixed.

Engine rpm will not go above 2000 when in park and will not go above 5 mph whenin gear

Being a 2001 the first thing to do is get the car plugged into a diagnostic scanner as it will show any logged errors to help diagnose. it's not an easy one to diagnose remotely as there are so many possible causes.

Overdrive light flashing, check engine light on, smells like exhaust when you step on gas going down highway

Over drive light flashing on a ford means you have a problem with your transmission and the computer is letting you know the trans needs serviced. You need to have the ECM scanned to reveal the problem and take the appropriate course of action to repair it. At the same time they can tell you why the check engine light popped on telling you the engine has a problem also. If you are smelling exhaust fumes then there is a good chance the engine is running rich and may need the tune up checked or may have an overfueling problem such as a bad fuel pressure regulator. Your local autozone may scan the vehicle for free with a small device they plug in that you drive around with or just scan it for you for free and give you a print out with repair suggestions. if your not sure what to do at theat point take it to a tech you trust for repairs. thanks for inquiring and let us know if you run into any problems, Rich.
