Do not continue to operate the car if the exhaust manifold is glowing orange
becuase of the risk of fire or other damage. The problem could be caused by
a leak or crack in the exhaust manifold or obstruction in the exhaust
system, either in the catylitic converter, muffler, resonater (if equipped
with one), exhaust pipe, or tail pipe.
