I have 1998 ford expedtion runs rough pipes get red hot. took pipes loose. no power still. put new plugs no luck please help!

It takes a lot of heat to make the exhaust pipes get hot enough to glow red. It is a dangerous condition and can lead to a vehicle fire. A clogged catalytic converter or manifold could cause this, but ultimately the heat from the exhaust fumes is not exiting the system properly. Even a clogged tail pipe could cause this. A vandal might have stuck something in the end of the tail pipe.
It is running rough because it cannot push the exhaust out and therefore cannot take in enough air.
Regardless of the cause, have this inspected and the blockage/clog removed repaired and do not continue to drive the vehicle with this condition.

Cat and exhaust are red hot and car lacks power on takeoff

hi there could be a few things that cause this one is the temperature senor malfunctioning causing the car to run rich as exhaust glowing would testify an overly rich or lean mixture check your spark plugs by taking them out and checking the residue on the tip of the electrode if its black and sooty
its running rich if its white its running too lean if it has reddish deposits it been running too hot
but not due to mixture its also possible that the catalst has broken up and is blocking the exhaust
with the engine running check the pressure out the exhaust pipe by holding you hand near the end and get somebody to rev the car for you see if you can feel a good pressure rise when they do if cant feel much you have a blockage and need to remove the catalyst and check its not damaged inside

Hard cold start,have to warm uyp till thermo hits 80 centegrade,if not allowed to warm up,car bucks allot lookese power struggle to even idle up,the exhaust was turning cherry red last night after i drove...

on the air intake is a pipe that picks up hot air from the exhaust manifold ,where this pipe joins the air intake pipe is a vavle which is operated by a bi.metal strip thermostat ,so when its cold it allows vacumn from the engine to open the valve allowing hot air into the intake which stops it from freezing up around the butterfly ,Something is wrong around this area but without having my head under the bonnet i couldnt say ,if your in doubt ask a local mechanic to have a look they will see the problem straight away

My alfa 156 1.8 stuggles with power from 1-20 mph as if no pwer can you help?

Strongly advise a catalytic converterinspection. Take a whiff ofthe exhaust at the tail pipe, Whiff, not trip out, kidding. If there is a strong odor of sulpheur or rotten eggs. The converter is questionable. Listen and if ou hear a wheezing at the pipe the cat is restricted.or if the exhaust doesn't stop immediately when the engine is turned off.. Good Luck _Ned_

Sounds like there might be something inside of your exhaust creating pressure making your pipes hot. You might need a new Catalytic Converter. Dont wait too long to check this out, because if you do need a new Catalytic converter, your exhaust Manifold MAY Melt to your Head because of the heat.
