You will need to have the computer scanned for codes, these codes will tell you where the problem is,then it can be diagnosed,when the check engine light flashes it means its a sierous problem that will cause converter damage, you dont want to keep driving the car in this condition,have this checked asap.have it scanned, autozone will scan it for free and give you the codes. start with that.it could be a cylinder misfiring or bad sensor causing a misfire, or a bad sparkplug or wire. good luck.

Flashing is bad, the engine is misfiring....you may have already damaged the cat converter by driving that way. Get it repaired before more damage is done.

Why is the engine light not only on, but flashing on my 2ltr petrol 2001 vw beetle, and the car is jolting even when idle (feels like it will stall), and it stinks like a firework???


Your light is flashing because it is telling you it needs attention right away. Get the codes pulled and fix the problem. Sounds like a emissions. Sensor problem or a blocked up catalytic converter.

Check engine light flashing and shakiness in car accompanied with burning smell.


The check engine light flashing is a pretty much universal sign that you have a misfire that is bad enough that a lot of raw, unburned fuel is being dumped in to the Catalytic Converter, to the point that it could be ruined if the problem is not taken care of very quickly.

A light mark check on my nissan micra keeping flashing. What does it mean? As well problem in the morning to start the car.


I would guess that would be check engine light. That means your vehicle is not running all systems properly. You should get a diagnostic to determine the cause.

Petrol sniffing


you might have a leak on to your engine and its burning off, that is where the smell is coming from, turn on your car and check for leaks.

Hi there, just under the rear seats is where the fuel tank sender unit is and sometimes the seal will leak out strong smell of petrol, you need to remove the rear seats and the sender unit cap and check the seal, may need replacing, hope this helps.
