Question about Chevrolet Colorado
Possibly the exhaust system has shifted and is too close. You'll have to
run it into a truck repair facility and see if the exhaust system can
be re-aligned. Another possibility---if the heated area is directly
above your catalytic converter, this converter could be starting to plug
up and overheat---or perhaps the CATshield has come off.
This solution work in other owners, they used to have the same issue, and solved it by installing the DEI (P/N 050503) Floor and Tunnel Shield on the OUTSIDE of the floor, above the exhaust system. The passenger side gets hot because of the cat converter and exhaust plumbing that is directly below. This material stopped it cold.
Here's a link to the material used. They bought it through Jeg's for about $100 and installed it yourself with only a sharp pair of scissors. the material has a "very aggressive adhesive" that is designed to be used on the bottom of the vehicle. This is the same stuff that you will find (in little patches) on the firewall, just near the exhaust pipe: http://designengineering.com/products.asp?m=sp&pid=27
You can also use some aluminum tape to cover the exposed edges of the material if you are into the aesthetics.
I hope helps, good luck.
