Do I dare drive it?

You must change the catalytic converter, do not clean it or take out anything from it, just replace it.

What would cause the cat to glow red hot ? Also shows code p0174

What you have is a rich condition! Your cat is glowing because it is working overtime trying to burn unburt gases. Your vehicle is dumping in too much fuel for one reason or another.

1997 jeep Cherokee exhaust manifold glows red &starts running rough cuts off hard to start once warm took off cat still have problem thinking bad gas

Sounds like you have a timing issue(firing after TDC, bad, pushing still burning fuel mix out the exhaust), so grab a timing light and check to make sure the engine is firing at the correct time before TDC. Your Cat convertor shouldn't be a problem.

The exhaust system could be blocked between the engine and the tail pipe. The fuel mixture could be too rich or too lean.

Why the exhaust manifold turn on red?

Ok I beleive your asking why your exhaust manifold is turning red. If this is the case you probably have a blockage in your manifold, or the cat is clogged. somewhere the is an obstruction not allowing the exhaust gasses to escape properly and the temperature just keeps raising. You need to fix this right away! If I were you I would take the exhaust apart and clean it, or just replace it, then take off the manifolds and clean them out, if you do not find the obstruction then the cat is clogged and needs replaced!

1986 Pontiac Fiero V6 2.8L rebuilt..I started it up, within 45 seconds the exhaust manifolds turn bright red and start burning up. I triple checked the timing, it is idling a bit higher than normal still....

That is usually from a clogged catalytic convertor and/or the pre-cat or collector that sits in between the manifold and the cat. If you left the pre-cat on, remove it and see what the result is.
