SOURCE: #4 CYLINDER MISFIRE

Hi the most likely fault would probably be head gasket, it maywell show no other signs of fault as it can blow into next cylinder.
Have a compression test carryed out and all 8 cylinders should be within 10% of each other.

SOURCE: #2 cylinder misfire and check engine blinks. when

First see what #2 spark plug looks like, probably time for a tune up. A compression test will verify engine is in good mechanical condition. Also check the 3 peice intake manifold for leaks - this is common, but ususally the miss smoothes out off idle if this is the case.

SOURCE: Check engine light

A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.

SOURCE: blinking check engine light: Misfiring on

My car was misfiring also. My mechanic reccomended using a few bottles of techron fuel injector cleaner, as my car was used alot previously for city driving. Over time, if it is not opened up and run good and hard at speed on the highway, they become clogged and it will misfire. I spent 30 bucks on two bottles, used it on two tanks, and all the hesitation and lights have gone away! It was awesome, hard tyo fiund a good honest mecghanic who will reccomend a 30 dollar fix that isnt even done by them, rather than a few hundred dollars worth of repairs that wont solve your problem.

You need to check that fault code, you have a misfiring engine cylinder. The fault code will indicate which cylinder or cylinders is casing the misfire. Go to any Autozone and have the fault code read, tell them you have a check eng light on.

My 2000 honda accord lx's check engine light has been on but now it's blinking ever since my car started shaking really bad.


A blinking check engine light is a signal that a damaging misfire is occurring in one or more cylinders. Your car is shaking because of the uneven power loss between firing cylinders and those that are misfiring. If you take your car to a major auto parts store, they will read out the stored trouble codes in your car's computer memory--and they'll do it for free. These codes will tell you which cylinders are misfiring and will help you find out why. Do it soon before more engine damage occurs--$$$$.

Engine light is on, flashes when driving above 100 Km


stop by local parts store (Autozone,Advance, etc) and have them do a free fault code test. They can print out a list of faults and clear the codes

Check engine light came on and was blinking... the car was vibrating/pulsating and had a delayed acceleration.. turned car off and then back on and it seemed to help but check engine light remained on, but...


A blinking check engine light indicates one or more cylinders is currently missfiring. You will have to scan the computer and get the code to determine which cylinder it was. Then you can start you diagnostics to figure out why it was missfiring.

Blinking engine light losing power


this light is blinking to let you know the engine has a cylinder mis fire, have the system tested for the fault code that tells u which cylinder is causing the light to blink. AAmco transmission does this code test for free, so does Kragen Auto and Autozone.
