How many miles are on the vehicle? Check the basics first...how is the battery? charging system? Make sure your getting fuel, spark, and air to the cylinders... Did the car overheat at all? Do you have a massive air leak somewhere? Usually when the exhaust glows red it means the vehicle is running way lean...I'm very surprised the CEL didn't illuminate...did you check the ECU for codes? Wait..your 100% sure there is fuel in the vehicle right?
