Owner was driving vehicle when smoke started to come from the dashboard. Examination revealed that a rubber body plug in the right front towboard ignited due to an overheated exhaust system, causing a fire that burned on the right front floor and upward into the dash. Spark plugs showed an engine management system problem existed that caused the overheated exhaust.
