You need to Replace the Catalytic Converter. That is what you are Smelling. It has Clogged up and will also Cause the Light on the Dash Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

You need to get the computer scanned. This can be done at Auto Zone or similar parts stores free of charge. More than likely you will just need new spark plugs and/or plug wires but I cannot be certain without the engine code.
Hope this helps, remember to rate this answer.

I would've started with the coil packs, modules, boots and plugs myself. They give many problems on the quad 4s?.

If you are really really lucky, it is the harness on the side of the transmission. Unplug the harness looking for corrosion. Clean and reassemble.
It could be the TFP Switch, wires connecting TFP to PCM or the PCM is bad

SOURCE: check engine light flashing

Hi:
You no doubt have a emission control issue, but you need to have your trailblazer scanned for codes, to see what the problem is. A local auto parts store will usually scan your vehicle for free, and once they do, you can get a best guess to what the problem is.

Engine light blinks on and off when rpm goes over 2 or accelerated past 40mph


I would suggest getting the engine codes read. With an intermittent problem like this there may not be any codes showing when it's checked but there's a chance that it will show what the problem is. My initial thought is that you may have a misfire caused by worn or fouled spark plugs. Often times when your spark plugs start to go bad they'll misfire when put under stress like higher rpms.

When the OD light flashes it means the transmission has developed a fault. As to what the fault may be is yet to be seen without the system being scanned. In many cases the light indicates the transmission is slipping, you may not feel it slipping, but the computer (called the PCM) senses it through the internal speed sensors that measure main shaft input speed and shaft output speed in RPM. Other problems like shift solenoids can cause this as well. Another factor can be the transmission fluid is worn out, it should be replaced along with a new filter every 60,000 miles minimum.

Check engine light and lost of power


This sounds a lot like a bad TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Of the many sensors on this model vehicle, the TDC sensor failure is common and is one of the few sensor failures that will disable your vehicle.

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.
