Your Check Engine Light flashes when the computer detects a condition that may harm the engine. Typically you have a missfire in one or more of your cylinders. From how you describe, you may have a plugged catalytic converter. The best test without a backpressure gauge is to disconnect the exhaust in front of the converter.

My service engine soon light just came on today and wont shut off, what could be the problem I have a 2006 lancer


the fisrt thing to check is the fuel cap to see that it is on securly. there is an environmental sensor in there that detects when the gas cap is loose so that vapors are not spead needlessly to the atmosphere causing polution. Put it on tightly and hear the clicks then disconect your negative battery cable for about 10 min then reconect ... this will hopefully put the light out. another probelm is usually the oxygen sensor you will have to take it to a repair shop to diagnose that and have it relaced. As long as your light is not flashing you can still drive the car if it begins to flash attention is required and I would probably pull over and see help for it right away.

Take your rig.. drive it to a gas station.. fill the tank up with gas.. also fill 2 jugs of gasoline at the same time... put the jugs in the back of it.. now drive as far as you can until the rig runs out of gas.. then, take the two jugs of gas.. pour it all over the rig, inside and out.. now light it a-blaze, then walk to your nearest car dealer and buy a new car..
