You did not post the year make and model so it is hard to say anything other then go get an OBD reader from an auto store and use it. A flashing check engine light is serious and if you drive that vehicle, you risk engine damage.

SOURCE: Fuel Pressure Problem on my 1996 Ford Explorer (4.0 V6)

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is going bad...this will cause the fuel pressure to be high and create a flooding condition. Which in turn will gas wash the motor and contaminate the O2 sensor with excessive fuel. Check fuel pressure with a gauge at the valve you are using to relieve pressure. You can find pressure specs on-line for that particular vechicle. If pressure is high...replace regulator, O2, change oil and reset computer by disconnecting battery for ten minutes...

Hi. the fuel pressure sensor is part of the fuel pump assembly. You will have to remove the fuel pump to replace this. I would go ahead and replace the fuel pump while you are there.You will have to Pull the strainer off the fuel pump and discard it. remove the retaining clip for the fuel pressure regulator so that you can remove the fuel pressure regulator. Disconnect the electrical connections for the fuel pumps and the fuel level sensor. Remove the retaining clip for the fuel level sensor and remove the fuel level sensor by squeezing the locking tangs. the sensor is incorporated in this area.

Please rate and god bless.

Over fueling at Idle/low revs causing rough run and engine stall suddenly.

Possible causes of your issue:
  1. Clogged air filter
  2. Bad fuel pressure regulator (most likely)
  3. Sticky idle air controller (also likely)
  4. Burned or stuck EGR valve, or bad EGR solenoid
  5. Bad throttle position sensor (especially if the "Check Engine" light is on or flashing)
  6. Bad oxygen sensor (especially if the "Check Engine" light is on)
  7. Water in fuel or bad fuel
What to do:
  • Start by removing the air filter to see if the problem persists. If the air filter is dirty, replace it.
  • Next, verify that the Check Engine light is operating by turning the key ON but not starting the vehicle. The Check Engine light should be illuminated. If not, replace the Check Engine light bulb.
  • If the Check Engine light is ON when you start the car, try feathering the accelerator pedal to see if the base idle stabilizes or changes. If it does, replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). This is a fairly inexpensive part.
  • If the Check Engine light is FLASHING, or ON, next you will need to have a local mechanic or your local auto parts store attach an ODB scanner to determine what error codes are present. This will help you pinpoint the issue.
  • Once you have pinpointed and corrected any issues present using the ODB codes, you will need to attach a FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE to the fuel rail test point to determine if the fuel pressure is correct. If it is too high, the FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR has failed. Again, this is an inexpensive part but the fuel system pressure must be released before servicing this part. Best done by a qualified mechanic.
  • HAS THE CAR SAT UNUSED FOR A PROTRACTED AMOUNT OF TIME WITHOUT FUEL BEING REMOVED OR ADDED? If so, the condition you are describing may be a result of bad fuel. Modern fuels contain ethanol, which causes moisture to condense in the tank when it is not agitated. This can cause water to build up in the fuel, and causes the fuel system to rust as well as an idle issue that resembles what you are describing. Try adding new fuel, and add a full bottle of FUEL SYSTEM WATER REMOVER. Remember: IF FUEL IS ALLOWED TO SIT IN YOUR VEHICLE'S TANK (without new fuel being added) FOR MORE THAN SIX MONTHS, IT WILL GO BAD.

My 2004 VW Passat 1.8 turbo has had quite a few problems. In February my car started flashing OIL PRESSURE TURN MOTOR OFF whenever I'd hit 2000 RPM. SO I got my oil changed and my pressure checked and it...

With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

Flashing check engine light on a 2001 chevy venture

First check for spark at any of the sparkplugs and if you have spark then check your fuel pressure.This will help narrow the problem down.Let me know what area the problem is in whether it be ignition of fuel.

Engine cranks but wont start

Usually if no rpm signal, the vehicle won't start. Engine cranking, did you check for spark at the spark plugs? The fuel pressure you listed may have been the initial prime. It sounds like no injector pulse. The rpm signal comes from crank sensor. If your missing rpm signal, may thought is the crank sensor.
Were there any applicable trouble codes?

Engine cranks. sparks but does not start. fuel pressure ok

Have you replaced the crank sensor? The crank sensor on top of the trans. bell housing does control the injector pulse through the ECM.
The sensor is a common problem with the Jeeps. Sometimes the sensor stops working when the engine is hot and will start again when it cools off and sometimes it dies from oil leaking on top of it or it just dies.

1994 Jeep Cherokee turns over but won't start.

Pump should run with key on till it builds up pressure. To check coil, hold wire about a quarter inch from block and have someone crank engine. Spark should be strong and bluish (is that a word?) Anyhow, if coil is good, do the same thing again, only with a spark plug wire (any one you can easily reach) PS you did get the firing order right when you changed them? If there is no spark, check :Crank sensor is a bit harder to check.... First, check codes: Turn ign switch on and off three times, leaving it on the third time: check engine light will flash. read as follows: one flash= the number one etc. there is a pause between flashes: one flash, pause, two flashes= the number twelve. Ignore code 55 it just means the computer is finished sending codes. Code 11 is the crank sensor. To further check, disconnect the sensor harness and check for continuity between b&c terminals (connector should be marked) there should be no continuity when checked with an ohmeter between these two terminals. Crank sensor is on the left side of the bellhousing just where it's a real pain to reach it! Harness connector is on the firewall near or below the back of the engine on the drivers side.
