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 .

My muffler for toyota get hot and red


Are you sure its the muffler....or is it the catalytic converter? It is not normal for wither to get cherry red - this usually means that you have raw fuel being burned in the exhaust stream. This is usually due to a burnt exhaust valve.

How to know when catalytic converter goes out on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Your "Check Engine" light will come on, the exhaust should smell worse than normal, the engine MAY refuse to run well at higher road speeds (if the catalytic plugs the exhaust pipe), and most importantly... if you crawl under the vehicle with it fully warmed up and bring your hand near the catalytic converter, it'll be hotter than the rest of the exhaust system if it's still functioning. If it's not functioning any more, it'll be the same temperature as the rest of the exhaust system.

A good catalytic converter may be hot enough to glow dull red after it's warmed up. That's why the manufacturer always wraps heat shields around them, to keep that heat away from the paint under your vehicle and keep the excess heat from entering the passenger compartment.

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....

Catalytic converter turns red hot on my 2002 ford escape


The cherry red is probably due to raw gasoline being burned in the converter. Since the engine isn't running right (and I'm surprised you didn't say the Check Engine light was on), there seems to be some kind of valve timing issue or perhaps a burnt valve that is causing at least one cylinder to not fire and thus expel the fuel/air mixture into the exhaust stream. This can be confirmed with a compression check of the cylinders. If they are all low, then there is a problem with valve timing, possible a jumped belt/chain. If only one cylinder is low, then a burnt or broken valve is more likely.
