That will be your clutch burning. I expect your Ford S-Max has a Dual Mass Flywheel, which if you are not careful will eventually warp and need replacing at an approximate cost of between £700-1000. If you are fit and able,I would suggest manually putting your van onto its pitch. If not get a motor mover fitted and give your cars clutch a much earned rest.
