Took my 93 LWB 4.2ltr V8 Autobox up a fairly challenging lane yesterday and when we emerged at the other end ( about 7/8 minutes driving) There was a slight burning smell ...a bit like a hot clutch. I had the Rangie in lowbox and had selected D. Anyone any thoughts on what this might be? and do I need to check anything now? Thanks in advance

Was it the small of burning vegetable material? Or was it a more mechanical smell, like brake pads or hot mechanicals?

I can imagine you picked up some tall grass on your exhaust pipes which might smoke pretty well....

Thanks for the reply.
I don't think it was any of those reasons as the lane is all mud as tractors constantly use it. Also its a steep uphill climb so no brakes! I wondered if it was the oil in the auto box getting too hot, though no warning lights cam on. Then I began to think clutch slip? The smell was more burning clutch than anything else. But I would have thought on an auto box that wouldn't happen. But maybe someone who knows might know different!
