You have big fuel control problems like a engine that is running way rich on gas mixture or it has a misfiring cylinder.

Replace your muffler sounds like it is getting clogged up and not letting the exhaust gases escape fast enough that will cause the converter to over heat. Good luck

Exhaust glows red hot


That means you are sending raw fuel into the exhaust, likely due to severe misfire. That will destroy the Catalyst in short order too.

What does the "1 km/"h sign mean?


ive not seen this before, but if the oil light is glowing , you must first check oil level first. itis hard to determine if the red light is actually on in video. Red light anywhere means stop or dont drive, a yellow is to warn of up coming problem, or that it has a problem and will need to be brought to a mechanic soon as possable.

Changed catyletic converter new one glows red what could be problem?


Glowing red catalytic converter means your car is injecting too much gas, more than the spark plugs can burn up efficiently in the cylinders, or you have a serious misfire, so multiple cylinders are sending unburnt fuel into the exhaust system, where it will ignite inside the catalytic converter due to high heat. find the cause of excessive amount of unburnt fuel getting into the exhaust system. don't run it like that too much or it will ruin your new cat. quickly if it is glowing red... incorrect timing of engine, severe engine misfire, possible causes.

  • Even though the glow plug goes out it does not mean the all the glow plugs are working,
  • Remove glow plugs.
  • With a set of jump leads connected to a battery connect the earth lead to the body of the glow plug and touch the top of the glow plug where the wire is connected with the pos lead the top of the glow plug should heat up and turn red.
  • Only replace the ones that do not heat up.
  • Hope that helps.
