The check engine light usually flashes to indicate a misfire. if you go to advance auto they will scan the car and read the codes for free, you can add them to your question and they may give you a best guess, to me it sounds like an oxygen sensor or a mass airflow sensor which will effect your air fuel mixture causing the car to run badly.

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--$$$$.

The check engine light came on last night. I started the car this morning and the cara was shaking really bad from the engine and the engine is very quiet but the whole car has a shake or little knock to...


Could be a broken motor mount. Not uncommon to break one. However, for it to shake badly you may have just broken a second motor mount.

If the service center is close by, I would likely take the chance and drive it. I just wouldn't accelerate hard - and I would be very gentle. That is just my opinion - can't be "for sure" without knowing more.

Good luck.

Shaking engine, weak power, blinking check engine light


You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.

Car engine light on light blinking shaking over due for oil chang


Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.

Car shaking and service engine light blinking


Hi Habitsi1982,
make sure that it's firing on all cylinders....Has any one played around with the firing order of the spark plugs?....I'm not sure what vehicle it is that you have.....If the engine check light comes on, the onboard management computer has picked up a fault....take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and that will tell you very quickly what the problem really is.
