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

Replaced the alternator and battery on 98 civic ex, car ran cherry and all of a suddent doesnt want to start, just died on me while driving.


ran cheery, the exhaust ran red hot? LOL.
the engine runs off the alternator not the battery.
so , if the alt is bad,the battery will discharge.
the alt charge lamp glows, did it?

old post,
bad alt, or battery is no good.
try a known good battery , and make sure the
voltage across the battery is 13.3v to 15vdc running.
if not the ALT System is bad, notice I said system.

btw , replaced means nothing to me.
new , used, rebuilt, recycled, , what?

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.

What's the sign of a bad cat converter on a 1999


If the cat is clogged, blocking exhaust flow, the car may start normally, and may run fine while the engine is cold. Within a few mins as engine warms it will start to bog down and die when you try to acellerate, even a little. May even die out if you give it gas, while it may idle just fine.
This has been my experice in 2 different cars of different types over the years.

My 91 F250 5.8L starts, runs for a few seconds, lets a greyish black(not blue or white) smoke out of the exhaust, then dies.


It sounds like the catyletic converter might be plugged. I had a Chevy Suburban a while back that did the same thing, no check engine light. To figure it out, I took the exhaust pipes lose at the manifolds. It started right up and ran fine but noisy, there are aftermarket converters available from most auto parts stores.

Sounds like you have a plugged up catalytic converter. You cant clean them it will need replaced. If it is the 4cyl engine, the converter is the exhaust manifold on the front of the engine.

I hace a 2003 lincoln ls v8 3.9l. I was driving


Try taking the exhaust pipe loose at the manifold. I had a Chevy Suburban that acted the same way, it turned out to plugged catyletic converter. The converter wasn't letting the exhaust out, the truck had no power, it would stall and then start right up and great for about five seconds the run rough and quit. Once I disconnected the exhaust it started right up and ran great. You could also try taking the O2 sensors out (for test purposes) ahead of the converter that will give the exhaust a place to go

91 Camry - Engine starts to accelerate and then almost dies, or does die.


May have an exhaust gas restriction.  The catalytic converter often produces your symptom when it clogs.  Verify by loosening the front exhaust pipe where it connects to the engine exhaust manifold slightly, (about 1/8th in.) and then drive car to see if it will now accelerate.

My car lost horsepower then died.starts but dies when it gets gas


Sounds like a bad/restricted cat converter. If the exhaust has an odor of sulpher and the exhaust pipe is very low or lacking discharge pressure or you hear wheezing at the tail pipe, it is your catslyctic converter. Good Luck. Ned
