My Toyota Avanza floor gets very hot. Hot enough to melt a plastic bottle. I suspect it is from the exhaust pipe. How can i sort this out?

Thanks. There has been no engine light on at all. Although this problem has been evident since I've had the car it was worse on my last long trip. I did drive a fair distance with a faulty spark plug, couls this have been a contributing factor to the increased heat?
