Are there any fault codes stored? Where are the Catalytic Converters?

Has the engine lost power? Retarded ignition or valve timing will cause the exhaust to glow red and result in dramatic loss of power. Rich running conditions causes cat converter melt down. As Bret said trouble codes will determine the diagnostic path to follow.
