Driving home from work. No problem noticed, car seemed to be running fine. Looked out my rear view mirror and noticed smoke blowing out from under the car. Pulled the car over and the smoke/steam was coming out from under the hood. Car gauge showed maximun hot. Upon further inspection, looked like oil had spewed out and found oil in the radiator.

Need HELP!

Hi there,

This sound rather terminal unfortunately. As you have a manual the oil will be engine oil & on Honda's that usually means a cracked cylinder head. You will have to get a qualified technician to clean and inspect the engine for damage, with the external loss of engine oil, ( the oil filter may have come loose) there may be further internal complications as well.
