A red hot exhaust manifold means it's running very lean, possibly your 02 sensor has worn out, among other possibilities, including an air intake leak causing the fuel/air ratio to not adjust the fuel trim. It will also cause the misfire. Another possibility is a clogged catalytic convertor

When was your last tune up? Have you checked computer codes? Toyota OBD1 I doubt if any parts stores will be able to check them. Check the basics first, plugs,cap,rotor, wires, fuel filter, air filter. Then it gets more involved.

I got a 96 celica the manifold gets red hot . The engine was rebuilt . I changed the converter and still gets red hot. If I drive in the city is ok. But if I get on the highway hitting 60 mph for about 15 minutes that's when it gets red hot.
