If this is noticeable in the daylight, your fuel mixture is probably running very lean (not enough fuel) and you should not run the bike until you find out why (carburetor issue possibly). If you only notice this at night, a dull orange glow is not unusual, if it is bright red or goes very far down the pipe your mixture is probably lean.

If you continue to run the bike in a lean condition you will likely damage the engine severely, blowing the headgasket or burning the valves.

Replaced Catalytic Conv., Fuel Pressure Reg, Fuel Pressure Sensor, Muffler/exhaust. Cat still gets glowing orange/red. Any help ?

Do a compression check of the engine. You may have a bent or burnt exhaust valve that is letting unburned fuel get into the exhaust stream. It will burn in the cat and that can cause the red glow.

Just bought a 1997 corvette been sitting a while charged up battery would not stay running was missing only ran when i kept on fethering pedal the noticed exhaust pipe got cherry red

Check to see if the exhaust is exiting the rear tailpipe. Could be a plugged up catalytic converter. Or some sort of obstruction in the exhaust system....

Why dora tus exhaust light up fire red and gas pours out the carburator

check and adjust for a faulty needle and seat unit in the carby that is not controlling the fuel flow. Check the ignition timing as red exhaust indicates too far. The fire in the combustion is still alight when the valve opens allowing the fire (around 300 degrees c) to exit to the exhaust pipe. You may also check valve timing for the same fault

Exhaust comes realy orange

there is a excess build up of oil in the exhaust, remove the exhaust and pour some petrol inside the exhaust and light it, leave it for around 30 mins to let it burn away the oil. Be VERY careful when lighting as sometimes you get a little flame puff out of bith ends.
please rate this advice.

2003 escape idling to high, exhaust pipes turning orange red, not cataylic

Hi Whitewolf108,

Is your vehicle a turbo diesel? or if it's petrol, again does it have a turbo?.... The turbo can often cause the effect that your explaining, regarding the orange glow from the exhaust manifold.... To give any more advice, I'll need more info from you....Example: do you live at a high altitude?.....The type of engine?....Any modifications bolted on?.... When did the idling become too high, was anything done to the carburation around that time?

Regards Johngee10

Red hot exhaust manifods

Make sure that your catalytic converter and exhaust is not plugged..Also check for propper map sensor operation,the reading that the map sensor supplies to the pcm is used to adjust ignition timing and fuel delivery.If the timing is being retarded to far , the exhaust exiting the cylinders will be extremly hot and will produce the effect you are having...Good Luck...
