Q: overheated manifold

asked by on

what the reasons for overheated manifold and what is the solution

My car has 22000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. This seems unusual for a vehicle with 22,000 miles, assuming, the engine is not overheating. Assuming, the Check Engine Light is not on, leads me to believe the vehicle computer (ECM-engine control module) is not recognizing the fault. Assuming, it’s the exhaust manifold and not the intake manifold. It could be, an incorrect fuel mixture caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator excess raw fuel burning in the manifold. It could be, a partially restricted exhaust, ie: catalytic converter not allowing hot exhaust gases to exit the exhaust. Proper diagnoses should be performed, as there are several other possibilities. I recommend having your vehicle’s overheated manifold be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
