Hi Civinfo, wonder if someone could help with a bit of speculation.
Yesterday, I was driving my Type R back from France when it had a major problem. I had just filled with fuel and was accelerating away from the petrol station when, after about a minute, I noticed white smoke coming from the rear. There was a fair bit so I eased right off the gas (I had reached about 100mph by then). There was no loss in power and no noises from the engine other than the purring I expect. After I eased off, the oil light came on and I pulled over.
When I got out of the car, it was dropping all the oil onto the side of the road.
I've relayed her to a Honda garage outside Paris, who are going to take a look tomorrow and give me a call.
I've had to return to the UK due to work.
She's an '07 CTR GT with 35k on the clock and a full Honda service history. Mint example and have had no problems for the 5k miles I've owned her.
I usually drive around London with the odd country trip to the family.
I never pull away before warming up the engine properly and top up with oil regularly.
Actually, I topped up on the way down to the event on Friday.
I'm a bit concerned that it's ahead gasket or a cylinder/head issue but, I'm a bit on the dark really - lot's of conflicting symptoms online.
Can anyone offer any ideas as to what the problem might be?
