SOURCE: 96 lexus es 300 blinking check engine light

Hi there;

#4 Miss-fire. All the things you are saying make a lot of sense. When the light is blinking the cylinder is actualy misfiring, & the smell you are smelling is the fuel that is not burning in the engine burning in the exahst. This can cause a lot of damage to the exausht if it is not repaired..
There is still a couple of things that need to be checked, first he needs to check to see if it is possibly a fuel injector that is sticking. He can do this easily by moving the #4 injector to another cylinder & run the car. When it starts missfiring he will need to see if it is still #4 or if it is the cylinder that he moved the injector to. if it is the new cylinder it is obviously the injector, if it is still #4 he will need to look into the possibility of the EGR valve sticking open or some other issue to do with valve timing or low compression.
I hope this helps
Farrout!

SOURCE: check engine lights came on,

A constantly blinking check engine light means you have a misfiring engine that is bad enough to cause your catalytic converter to go bad! Take it to the shop... probably means ignition parts and the upper manifold has to come off... and that's no fun! Good luck.

2002 toyota highlander 4 cylinder check engine light blinking


A blinking light, like a "service engine soon immediately" light?
The only way to know why the engine computer turned the light on is to plug in a scan tool at the diagnostic port, and then the fault code or codes will be displayed. The code will refer you or a tchnician to a specific system, part, or circuit that the computer has detected a fault in. It probably is the cause of your running rough condition, also.
Some parts stores (Autozone, and other national stores) offer free scan service to retrieve trouble codes. Be careful of buying new parts just because the trouble code refers to them. Most trouble codes need a little testing and further diagnosis to pin-point the problem.
You can post the codes here for help, or take them to youir mechanic.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

Engine light is blinking and the car runs rough,not enough power.


You shouldn't have taken the car back,nor should the shop given you the vehicle,if you were willing to have it properly repaired.
The MIL Light is an indication of an issue or two and you said it runs rough and has no power. What more does a shop need. Repair it.

Is the Fuel Filter fairly new
Did they Clean the MAF Sensor,and make sure your air filter cover is on correctly,and you have no vacuum leaks.
They can look at all sensor data and resolve this ,if they wanted to.

Check engine light blinks


My suggestion is to get the fault codes stored in the car's ecu read by a VW approved garage. That will tell them what "was" wrong. Once a fault has occurred the check engine light will probably stay on until the warning has been cancelled using VW software.
As for the grade of gas used in the car, the users manual will tell you that - it might also be written inside the filler cap.

I wouldn't recommend further use of "engine cleaner" - it might do more harm than good.

Go get the codes read and then you'll know for sure.

Hope this helps. D
