This is my first post, unfortunately it's a negative one.
I have a 1980 cx500 E (84,000kms). It has been running fine, until today.
The engine has always had a ticking noise, that got louder today. The temperature also slowly crept up to a few mm above optimum (about the middle).
I also noticed power significantly decreased to the point where I pulled over and walked home.
It had oil, and water. Any ideas on what has happened?
I'm hoping like hell its not a big end or a 'about to seize', I drained the oil once I got it home on a trailer - nothing out of the ordinary.
Any help would be much appreciated!
