Last month, my car wouldn't start when I turned the key and it was because the engine was busted. I would hear a bit of a rumble and then I would hear nothing. However, if you can't hear anything, then it is probably an issue with your battery. Did you leave your lights on in your car the night before? When you leave your lights on, it drains the battery and makes it so your car doesn't start. Auto Repairs
The emission light comes on when the computer detects a leak or malfunctioning part in the system. It can come on due to a loose gas cap to a disconnected hose. There a lot of things that make this light come on. IS the check engine light on/flashing? If so, you may have a misfire causing the shake. If the engine light is on, have the codes scanned to isolate the problem.

Hello Shena: The flashing check engine light means to get your attention as the engine is misfiring as well as having some sort of "fault" The only reason that light comes on at all is that your vehicle is exceeding federal tailpipe emissions by a factor of 1 and a half.
The knocking and shaking is most likely caused by the misfire.
Have it analyzed by a good shop and best case scenario is there is a malfunctioning spark plug, spark plug wire or ignition coil. Get it done right away, misfires can damage the catylitic convertor (thus the flashing instead of steady light)
It would help to know the VIN of the car so mechanics can drill in on the specific model of your vehicle.
f the light is on steady it is prob one of the emission sysytem's like 02 sensor.. as long as light is not blinking ok to drive till fixed..
Clear light by: taking batt cable off for about 3 min and prees your foot on break while cable is off.. then put cable back on.. light will go off for a while but as soon as it sees the problem again it will come on
