1986 Ford Mustang mileage: 139,000.I recently noticed that my catalytic converter was glowing bright orange and it started smoking very badly. What do I need to do to fix the problem?

Your fuel injection is malfunctioning causing an over-rich condition. Scan your computer for fault codes, which should pinpoint the problem. Then replacing your catalytic converter would be a good idea too.
