Sounds as if the engine has developed a cylinder misfire. First thing to do is access the engine control module data by using a scan tool to see what code or codes has turn the engine light on. After you retrieve the codes proceed with the diagnosis.

My ford focus' check engine light just came on on the way home from work and is flashing periodically car seems to be running ok so far can you help


flashing check engine lights mean that there is a critical failer that could cause severe damage. they should not be taken lightly. a missfire can cause the light to flash. the best thing to do is take car to a shop or an auto parts store to get the check engine light read. check engine lights dont always tell you exactly what is rong, but this will give a good direction to start in. a check engine code would be helpfull in diagnoseing the cars problem.
