    Reading this question, the first thought that came to my mind was of Ravi, our moderator from Bangalore! :D

    can you give the link to the specific thread if possible...

    cause i remember i had sent you a PM regarding the matter since you had a similar situation..and you had told me...that you got it checked at TASS. They did not know where the problem was.So you ignored it and after a while it disappeared on its own.

    so i assumed that mine might be a different issue since it has persisted till now :(

    Here you go :

    TASS checked out the car and found nothing. The eureka moment came when i happened to witness a new TATA Safari being started in the morning. The exact smell was emitted from it's exhaust as in the case of the Linea. That nailed the cause there and then.

    As always - this is my own diagnosis. So treat it accordingly.

    I still have that smell when i start the Linea for the first time in the morning.

    the smell i am talkin about isnt the one which comes exhaust when we start the car ..its happens arbitarily when the car is running and it comes through the AC vent.(when th ac is running!!)

    Gurjinderji, both our Puntos too let out a different smell just after start. Its more fumy, me thinks its due to the extra fuel primed by the injectors before start.

    There could be another cause too. Check the recirculation flap, its operation of closing and opening, if it is not tight enough you would get the exhaust fumes of the vehicle in front right into the AC vent. Happened to me and the flap was replaced.

    If you get that smell even in empty roads with no source of fumes, its a different issue altogether.
