This is allmost always a problem related to the engine room wiring harness or Connectors. And add some extra ground to the ECU above the passengers feet.

SOURCE: 2001 kia sportage engine light flashing, car

Hello, You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys. This will read what the "check" light is trying to tell you. All of the symptoms can be something the scanner can read. Check to see if your gascap is tight.

SOURCE: 2006 Kia Optima LX V-6 Engine light flashing engine running rough

A flashing check engine light means FIX IT NOW! It probably has a dead cylinder (most likely an igniton issue).Most likely,the PCM has figured out which cylinder it is aand turned off the fuel injector to it.You can get a cheap,basic code scanner(mine was 50 bucks at Harbor Freight Tools,made by Cen-Tech).It can read the code and has a book to tell you what the code means.If you find the cylinder with the misfire and correct the problem,you have to clear the code to restore fuel to that cylinder(this cheap tool does that,too).

Thw first 3 codes indicate 02 sensor problems, so on that change those sensors and that should clear that up, the 0300 is and engine misfire, I suggest changing at least the cap and rotor and maybe even the wires as damage may have occured, its simple, relatively cheap and shoudl get you on your way.

A flashing check engine light means you have a catalyst damaging miss-fire. you will need to get the fault codes pulled so you can see what cylinder/cylinders are causing the problem. Once you have this information a diagnostic path can be determined.

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.


have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!
