Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse
It really depends what the problem is, what caused the "Check Engine" to come on. It could be something really minor, but it also could be something more serious that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. In worst cases driving with the "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. If your check engine light came on, I certainly recommend to have your car checked out as soon as possible to be on a safe side.
If the Check Engine light is flashing means that the engine computer (PCM) has detected that your engine is misfiring. Driving with misfiring engine could damage your catalytic converter, which is a very expensive part. Often the misfiring could be caused by bad spark plugs and wires; if you haven't done a tune-up in a while, it might be a good idea to do it now for a start.
Yes, OBD link could be relaced with OEM parts with your dealer.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

All three are possibilities. Without knowing what the vehicle was doing no one here would be able to say otherwise. If it is an Automatic, considering they mentioned a solenoid, and the fluid is low, a check you can do, add fluid to the proper level and see if the problem resolves itself. If it doesn't you will need to take it to a transmission shop to have it diagnosed to the exact problem.
