This is caused by a engine ignition misfire most often, have the fault code tested to see which cylinder is having the problem, the most common cause is a defective plug wire or spark plug but there are many other reasons like a bad fuel injector, low engine cylinder compression and about 6 other poss causes

Engine vibration and flashing check engine light


The flashing check engine light and the symptom you described indicate you have an engine misfire. The most common problem is the coils. You have two options. You can either scan the engine computer for trouble codes that will help you identify or narrow down the possibilities. I'm going to bet that there is one or more of the following codes. P0301, P0302, P0303, and/or P0304. The other option is to get a spark tester and test each coil one at a time to see which one is not working.

Flashing engine light on ford freestar,engine is running very rough at higher rpm


A flashing engine light usually indicates a misfire or several misfires. If the ignition components (coils, wires, distributors...) some how become exposed to moisture it is possible to get a rough running engine due to misfire(s) cause by arcking.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

Weird warning light behavior and rough idling.


First of all your car needs too have the battery disconnected but only the negative terminal, usualy black in color if you have caps over the terminals. second wait 10 minutes before you reconnect it. third have a auto parts store hook it up too a code reader, it will tell you everything that you want too know about what is causeing the problems.....most places do it for free as a service.
