159 1.9 jts

Bright Red Header

Hi there,

I have a 159 1.9JTS. Fe months ago the car started to stall and sound like misfiring. The car went to the agency for 2 weeks, they checked everything supposedly, the injectors was very obstructed because of the poor quality fuel, the butterfly valve as well. They've also checked if the exhaust wasn't obstructed, but it was ok. Anyway, the car came back from the agency a week ago, the car was still staling, not much power, needed the rev the car high to get small power. This afternoon after 1min driving the car started to stall completely, the aircon stopped and a high temperature came inside the car. After driving the car back home at 1000rpm, I looked at the the engine and found the exhaust header bright red.

Any similar problem or help would be much appreciated.
