Guys,


Was just joining a stretch of unlit motorway in the early hours of the morning and floored it in 3rd. As the car was building up speed. there was suddenly a loud 'pop/bang' and noticed in the rear/side mirrors the night was lit up behind my car in a yellow light! I thought something had blown in the bonnet, but the car seem fine.
This has never happened before so I assume its unburnt fuel being ignited in the exhaust. This is not normal so is this a first indication of something going to go wrong?

BTW - I wished I could of seen it from a car behind. Would of been a sight!

Under acceleration doesn't seem like a good thing, but during gear changes it's acceptable.

I'm told that my car drops flames several feet long when provoked.
