this pitcher is obviously sum sort o pipe, look to see if there are no bear wires touching anywhere under the hood of your automobile, does it run on gas or diesel???? I think its a diesel so you only get the glow when the heat is on, on cold start so check for a bare wire, 10-4, drive on son

I removed the intake, this is the top of the motor, you can see the distributor in the picture, all loose things have a place to go, They are only loose to provide for a better view under the hood. The car runs on gasoline, not diesel at all (2.8l v6).


That is a fuel line, look for a wire shorted to it somewhere along it's length. Not good.
