I am gettin a burning smell from under the hood if i drive awhile. it also comes into the car if i turn the heater or ac on all i get is a face full of burnt air smell if i pop the hood a little bit of smoke comes up from right behind were the air intake goes in. i had the header gasket changed a few months ago is it still possible that there is oil burn off after a few months? and there is nothing leaking out from under the car i ahve been checking for oil spots .

Usually thats from a valve cover leaking.

Last time I had a burning smell from my engine, the fuel pressure regulator was leaking. I dunno if that's your problem or not, but it wouldn't hurt to check it.
