      Hi Vika
      Is this a generic "hot metal" burning smell or is it specific burning smell like for example "wood burning" or "hair burning"? Could it be that you got some exhaust work done (de carb) and getting that burning smell? Could it be that some plastic or some other material is stuck in the undercarriage where it is coming in contact with hot region and causing the burning smell?
      Could it be that Some oil seal / cap in the engine bay is loose and hot oil is spewing / spraying out giving that burning smell?

      Also, do you smell this even in the morning after starting the engine or is it there after the vehicle has run?

      By any chance is it clutch burning smell since you will be in half clutch during the traffic
      Try walking into YOUR car rather than crawling. For me walking is always best ---GURU SHISHIR

      This was a common issue in Thar CRDE.
      This can be resolved by changing the exhaust pipe and ECU update.
      Search on Team-BHP for more info. (Exhaust gases into the cabin)

      I was mentioning about this post.
      If it is a different issue, then it is nothing to do with ECU.
