Petrol or diesel? If diesel it is the burning sulphur in the fuel. What does your Ford Dealership have to say about it?

I am not really sure what your problem is but if you have over sized tires on the car when you turn you could be getting this smell or someone changed the oil in the car they got a lot of oil in the frame and while driving it is getting on the drive belt and that will also give off a burning rubber smell

Hello, Jack the wheel up and see if it turns freely. You may have a sticky Caliper or bad bearing freezing up the wheel and tire. Check the inside sidewall for any gouge marks. Also check the Power steering reservoir line leading from the reservoir to the front bumper.
There is a recall on certain year trucks for this line. It has a habit of leaking where the line is metal and fits around a body clip on the frame. This would be located under the ABS module.
If this is a 4x4 unit, you can have a dry constant velocity joint and once it gets hot, it is encased in Rubber. I would like to know what you found to share with other clients. Thanks

Hello, One event I have found says this is a short in the wire that runs from the ECM to the Immobilizer. This was an overseas posting and the Immobilizer could be the Inertia sensor or the Antitheft system. On the vehicle I found, the wiring loom rubbed against the starter. So if you have any wiring looms running under the car, it could be a hot exhaust or Catalytic converter rubbing into it as well.
You can try Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance for a free scan. Their scanner may be successful as this problem may have developed more symptoms. The pullback is a significant indication as to what branch the problem stems from. It may also help for the mechanic to put the car on a lift and run it, then look for smoke.
There is not much to identify this problem on the internet. I hope my solution is very helpful in providing a direction to fix it. You can print this message and show it to Ford for reference.
