Engine light flashing on and off, runs rough when accelerated. really runs rough. can;t drive very far afraid it will break down. I live 20 min from the nearest parts store.


Hi Sherri,

A flashing (check) engine light might be due to a direct engine misfire. This may be a Type A misfire due to the flashing engine light. This can be severe and can cause "mechanical damage" to your car. It can ruin your catalytic converter, though you might also want to have your spark plug and spark plug boots checked to see if they should be replaced as well.

It would be best to bring your car to a mechanic and have it checked.

Thanks,
Lyza

My 2004 GMC Envoy all of a sudden started running very rough. Also has a bad smell like rotten eggs(catalytic converter smell but very strong) Very bad performance. Problem?


sounds like cat converter just about completely clogged and the back pressure from it is choking the vehicle causing the cylinder failure --the exhaust cant escape and will kill [stall] the engine--- with it running feel the exhaust coming out if there is barely any flow from tailpipe cat conv has failed [clogged ] and will need replacement -----when check engine light flashes it is to advise that u have a malfunction that needs immediate attention or further damage may occur and or vehicle shut down may occure
