    there are too many things it could be. have it checked by a proffesional, it'll be cheaper than replacing parts that dont fix your problem

A clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump can cause this. Have the fuel pressure checked. If it is below spec, check the fuel filter and pump. Some pump assemblies have a small rubber line connecting the pump to the steel line. If the hose has a leak, the pressure will be lost. The piece of hose is cheap.

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

Check the exhaust is not blocked if you hear a hissing sound out back that could be the problem,you can loosen it off at manifold its a good test,possibly a blocked convertor.

What would cause the two exhaust manifold pipes on the passenger side to glow red hot the ones on the driver side does not get red hot 2000 Mitsubishi galant 2 4


Try checking for a restriction in the system. possibly the catalytic converter. are the pipes before the muffler? you can smack your catalytic converter with a dead blow hammer a few times before you start the engine. you will hear a sound similar to breaking glass from inside the converter it's carbon build up. Start the engine and rev it up a little. If it was constricted the carbon you broke loose will blow on out. If nothing is restricted in exhaust you may have a bad exhaust valve on that side.

Hi my 1.8 mrk 3 golf wont go over 3000 revs has no power when driving and surges when in traffic. please help we have changed spark plugs as there was discolourattion.


I would start with the catalitic converter. When you run your car there are 2 ways to know that your converter is going bad. 1 after running for a while the converter can get very hot, to the point that it starts to glow red. it is bad. 2 Again when you run for a while, check the exhaust at the back, this will be hot, but not so hot that you can't keep your hand about an inch away from the end of it. If it extremely hot this is an indicater that the converter is clogging up and causing the symtoms you described.
