Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I can get it started but it dies right away. I can keep it running by giving it gas but then I noticed the cat converter glowing. HELP!
Have you changed the lambert sensor in the exhaust if its v8 then you will have 2.this controls emissions fueling etc. id say 80% its the problem or the cat itself is blocked

Sounds to me like it is misfiring badly or is overfueling.im assuming this is a petrol engine.if its misfiring it is not burning the fuel properly thus causing the catlytic convertor to heat up excessively and destroying it.u need to check high tension leads .spark plugs should be correct type ,and coils. replace convertor afterwards as old one would be destroyed with that heat
