05 dodge stratus car has miss muffler pipe glows red hot why


Have your vehicle checked by a good independent mechanic. You have a restriction somewhere…bent tailpipe, clogged catalytic converter or muffler…to cause it to glow red hot. Don’t park over any dry leaves or grass.


If the engine has a misfire, this can allow unburned gasoline to enter the exhaust system which ignites where it turns the exhaust pipe red hot.
