need more info but maybe it was electrical??? did you notice any funny smells or puffs of thick white smoke bfor it ignited?
Yes sir it smelt like it was over heating but gauge was still at 202 so I pulled Over n turned the engine off n smoke started coming tru the vents inside the car n then flames came frm the hood. N wud u happen to know of ne recalls on it?
