Summer Smoke Show

Originally uploaded by homeychan
Well I haven’t blogged for a while, I have not driven the car a lot and my wife just had a baby, so I have been extremely busy. I’ve been getting some grief for not putting up any news, but in this case no news is good news..until yesterday. Took the car to Banff with my dad and uncle from Jamaica, that is one of the fastest highways in Canada on the way back to Calgary. People consistently drive over 140/kmph which is rare for Canada, people generally want to drive side by side 10 below the limit on the highway. Anyways on the way back I was in a group that included an Audi TTs, a Mustang GT, and a random Dodge ½ ton, we were all moving about 140 to 160 consistently, when suddenly my car starts billowing smoke, huge smoke and it stinks in the car. We pull over and find no evidence of a problem, no leaks, no alarms, nothing; the only thing I noted was a bit of smoke coming out of the centre of the car right at the back of the engine. This is going to be another gong-show getting these guys to troubleshoot, if this car is designed for the German Autobahn, it seems every time I drive it at high speeds it blows smoke. There is a design flaw in this car, maybe crankcase ventilation/pressurization?
