My 1993 Dodge Stealth does not have sufficient fuel pressure. The fuel pump and filter have been replaced. The computer checks out fine. Several mechanics have just said 'good luck' with a Stealth.

SOURCE: I have a Kohler Command Pro 30 V twin engine. We have just replaced the exhaust, including muffler and pipes and when we run it for a few minutes the exhaust system was glowing red hot. Is this normal

Not RED hot, no.
You may have a restriction or a timing problem.
Was it that hot before you replaced the exhaust parts ?

2003 dodge truck dies,exhaust glows red, why?

sound like you need to have the catalytic converter checked. when a catalytic converter gets plugged up it will cause the exhaust pipe to get really hot or red. and show the symptoms you are describing. a good muffler shop should be able to test it. good luck

Catalytic converter

The exhaust downpipe is glowing red with heat?
To be honest, that may be fuel-air /and or cylinder head problem. A downpipe gets very hot, yes, but they don't glow red.

A faulty oxygen sensor can cause the catalytic converter to overheat - with disastrous results.

If you're not sure what you're doing don't mess around with things. get somebody who knows what they are doing to look at your car and give you an opinion

Exhaust glows red hot

Mazda rx 8 creates a lot of heat, to fix this you must change out the coolant every 20k miles, with the mazda brand coolant i think its called mazda f22 coolant, the engine stays hot due to the high RPM engine, you may want to check: ignition coils, cat, coolant, and do a compression test.

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.
