2000 Lincoln LS--Check engine light blinking/sputtering take off

2000 Lincoln LS: Check engine light will start blinking for several seconds, then stop blinking but stays on for several seconds and start blinking again (never goes off). Also, during take off it sputters (chugging feeling) but after driving for a few seconds/minute, it clears up and drives fine. Changed the spark plugs but it's still doing it. When I push the button for it to check the car status, everything checks out fine.

Hey I have the same problem...i changed all 8coils and spark plugs. But now when I start the car sometimes it stutter(shaking), but once I pass 3rd gear it drives fine, the engine light was blinking, then stayed on..but I disconnect the battery to clear it. Would the car shake if your low on fuel?

sputting when taking off could be lean fuel problem caused by clogged fuel filter or clogged fuel injectors.weak spark ignition caused by faulty alternator will set off check engine light, and a faulty tps sensor will cause problems on take off it will set off check engine light if faulty.if all is good low cylinder compression will cause sputting noise due to worn leaking engine valves.

My 2002 Lincoln LSE check engine light is blinking. It was solid briefly, but is now blinking. The car is sputtering, especially as I increase in speed, and in 2nd and 3rd gears. My bf accidently put...

The blinking is a single that continued driving without fixing the problem may ruin the emission systems and the motor itself. It needs to go to a qualified repair shop to be checked out.
