Customer Question
I have a 1986...

I have a 1986 Chevy bounder rv with a 454 I was driving and i could have the gas pedal all the way to the floor and it would just loose power then kick back in and start going again so I changed out the 2 fuel filters by the gas tank and the one in the carburetor and now when at a idle when I push the gas it reves up then the power starts dropping and the exuhust pipe coming out of the left side of the motor is glowing red

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

External

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '86 Chevy?

Bounder rv

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’m fixing myself all I have done was change the filters

ok

the red is indicating overheating in the exhaust. you may have a clogged cat converter and the engine cannot breathe. the red would be coming from too much fuel in the exhaust.

also, have you had the ignition timing checked?? retarded timing will cause tis as well but it would effect both sides.
