Best Answer

When the driver let's off the gas pedal going into a turn raw fuel gets pumped into the exhaust manifold. The manifold is so hot the fuel ignites and you see flames from the exhaust pipe. It's totally normal.

What makes blue flames and yellow flames?

Flames change colour according to what is being burnt and whether it is complete or incomplete combustion. Blue flames usually come about due to gas being burnt as that is complete combustion so all of the gas is burnt with no bi-products. Yellow flames however, the ones that usually come about due to wood being burnt come about because of the soot (carbon) produced when it is burnt. The soot burning is what produces the yellow flames. Flames can be all sorts of colours though, for instance, if you burn copper oxide then the flame will be green.
