Check engine light flashing, knocking, low power

Hello Shena: The flashing check engine light means to get your attention as the engine is misfiring as well as having some sort of "fault" The only reason that light comes on at all is that your vehicle is exceeding federal tailpipe emissions by a factor of 1 and a half.
The knocking and shaking is most likely caused by the misfire.
Have it analyzed by a good shop and best case scenario is there is a malfunctioning spark plug, spark plug wire or ignition coil. Get it done right away, misfires can damage the catylitic convertor (thus the flashing instead of steady light)
It would help to know the VIN of the car so mechanics can drill in on the specific model of your vehicle.

Your "knock sensor" kicks in??? That means there must be a knock detected and the engine is doing what it is supposed to do. How do you know your timing is 4-6 degrees at 60 mph?

Your description sounds more like a torque converter clutch problem. It would explain the poor mileage, having to floor it to go. I suggest having the transmission scanned, looking at the slip speed of the torque converter clutch.

Spark knock-

Is the check engine light on ?
The computer should be able to adjust ignition timing to stop the pinging if it really is spark knock. Its possible you have an ignition timing problem, or low fuel pressure.

Is it true that a damaged knock sensor can slow down or make the car lose power while going uphill? Toyota Corolla VE 98

Yes it can. The knock sensor retards the timing due to irregular levels of octane in todays gasoline, to eliminate or reduce what is called a spark knock. A malfunction could cause your car to lose power when car is under a load or uphill due to pre detonation or constantly retarded spark to the engine. If not replaced it can cause engine damage or head gasket damage. Hope this helps.
