When you have a flashing check engine light that means that you have a severe misfire that can cause damage to your catalytic converter. what you want to do is check your spark plugs for fouled out plugs and change it along with spark plug wire.

Happened to me. run the code with a scanner. check engine light ONLY flashes when there is a misfire. in my case cylinder two. while the car is running pull the wire boot out from the spark plug hole after removing the cover. you will know which cylinder is bad by the lack of change in the engines performance when doing so, also you will see a crack in the wire boot and sparks coming from it. change that wire, possibly all if you haven't done a tune-up lately. or wrap with electrical tape for a temporary fix.

never drive a car with a misfire in engine longer than absolutely needed. it may harm the catalytic converter. very expensive.

The check engine light is blinking off and on; the engine is puttering when on and when you press the gas, there is not much power.


Sounds like you have a pretty bad running condition if the light is flashing. Best place to start would be a basic tuneup with plugs. When you pull off the ignition coils make sure they dont look burnt, they may need to be replaced if they are.

First of all, there are far too many possible causes for the symptom you describe. Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Engine sputtering, engine skips at low speeds, emission light on


Is the service engine light on? If so, check with you local auto parts store....most will scan the code free or loan you a scanner in their parking lot.
