Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
After driving for about 5 minutes, the exhaust manifold come bright red. i took the exhaust system completely off. the first catalytic converter was empty. the second one is a replaced part from the previous owner. even then i emptied it. blow air in the system and it seem to have a good air flow throughout. put it back on ( both catalytic converter empty). tried it on the road again and it does the same thing. no power and the exhaust manifold is bright red, almost transparent. could it be the muffler that is plug. I"m a mechanic with 25 years off experience and I've never seen a plug muffler. thank you for your help.
Check the timing, too far retarded and fuel will burn in the manifold.

This job requires special tools and training. There is serious personal injury exposure!!!,
The oiling of the system needs to be addressed, the receiver/dryer needs to be replaced, the system needs to be evacuated....etc, etc.
Have a qualified shop do this for you.

Wandering fuel guages are associated with a bad fuel pump/sending unit in the tank. Probably one of the reasons it was for sale. will be about $200 for unit and $100 to change. Check your warranty for coverage.
