Re: [DML] Catalytic converter glows

Option one is you may have a plugged up catalytic converter, it will cause the engine to run rough and will also make it glow.
Option two is that the rcar unning rough is an indicator of some condition that is causing your car to to either pour too much fuel into the cylinder so it can't all get burned, or more likely that the fuel is not getting burned in the cylinder. Iin both of these conditions the because the fuel is not burned in the cylinder it ends up getting burned up in your catalytic converter instead. So check all of your plugs for spark, if they all have spark your next step is probably a compression test to see what is going on. The last time this happened to me on a vehicle it ended up needing a valve job.
Good luck.

Subject: [DML] Catalytic converter glows

I had not run my Delo for 4 weeks. I usually run it every 2 weeks for 30 minutes. This time it took about 10 tries to get it running. It would start and run for few seconds then die. When it started to run,
It run very rough. After 20 minutes the catalytic converter started to glow red. Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?
