Your catalytic converter is bad ! misfiring cylinders sends raw fuel down exhaust to catalytic converter were it burns an melts the insides causing it to plug . Suggest you take your vehicle to repair shop ! A new Catalytic converter can cost up to $700.00 or more . Some states , New York , California have to have Carb. certified cats .

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

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.

Sputterin loses power at 35mph


Possible causes:
Clogged fuel filter Low fuel pump pressure
Defective Catalytic converter Defective EGR valve
Incorrect fuel pinched/kinked fuel line
Malfunctioning Throttle position sensor Defective MAP sensor
Vacuum leak
...if your check engine light is flashing, then you are burning excessive amounts of gas which would indicate a rich condition.

I have a 98 2.4 chevy cavaier. bottom at converter is getting red. changed plugs,wires, ignition coil,fuel filter,fuel regulator. Still getting red. What else could we check?


I am assuming that when you say bottom at converter you are refering to the catalytic converter in the exhaust if the converter itself or the inlet area of the catalytic converter is starting to glow red from heat it is because the converter itself is plugged up (bad) and needs replaced. If catalytic converter is bad and not replaced will ruin ignition system components such as plugs plug wires and such as well as intake sensors. I hope I understood your question properly.

Check engine light has been on and now is flashing.(looks more like a engine/transmission pic). Car is sputterin on occasion.


When the light is flashing its indicating a problem that can cause more severe problems and should be diagnosed as soon as possible From what youve indicated it may be a misfire code which will cause catalytic converter problems
