S2000 is hurting

was cruising 80 ont he highway yesterday when i started losing speed, so naturally i hit the gas. Nothing. I down shift to 5th, then 4th (im only doing about 45 at this point). I pull over to the side of the road and all i can smell is burning oil, however there is none on the ground and the car is knocking like crazy. After this point the car will not even move forward an inch. No idea what it is yet its sitting on my lift at work so hopefully today i'll figure this out.

And thank god for warrantys

Sounds like he's got a fried engine, either no oil or oil pump quit working.

Well if all the fluids are up to level you're probably not going to know until you peel it apart.

I smell oil burning all the time, but it's not coming from my car. It comes from others because I drive with top down!

shipped it up to honda today so hopefully i'll know the verdict in the next couple of days. The only theory i have is whatever started knocking caused the knock to throw it in limp mode. Also the other techs at my work suspect a stuck lifter. but like i said no irregular temperature and all fluids are good, guess its gonna have to stay a mystery for a few more days
