You have a misfire problem. replace the spark plugs and the wires and you should be good to go. its very annoying especially going up a hill where you need power. it also might be the coil pack that is the problem but i doubt it. just do a tune up and you should be good.

The flashing engine check light means a code is being stored in the computer. You need to have this code read and this will tell you what system is malfunctioning.

Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.

If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.

My suzuki baleno 1.8 1997 check engine light comes on when i give a little gas, and the engine shakes. Refs or gear doesnt matter.


see the steps and fix it. God bless you
When you turn the ignition ON before starting the car, the "Check engine" light is supposed to come on indicating that the engine computer (also could be called ECM, PCM, or ECU) is powered on. If the "Check engine" light does not come with the ignition ON, it's possible that there is no power coming to the engine computer (e.g., due to a broken wire, faulty main relay, burnt fuse, etc.) or that there is a problem with the engine computer itself.

I have 2000 Avalon xls. i faced several problems with the check engine light. It came on and my engine started shacking hardly for several seconds and sometimes minutes. i did a check and the computer came...


When the Check Light Flashes vs: being on steady,
you stop using the vehicle, as that indicates a misfire
bad enough to damage the Exhaust Converter

So obviously, you should have gone to a repair shop
a long time ago & resolved whatever issues are there

Check engine light flashing


The a/c is causing more of a load on the engine control system. What exactly did you replace? Was it the coil for that cylinder?
There are times when more than one coil is faulty, it just so happens that was the pending code that appeared.
My suggestion is, get the car diagnosed and ask for the mode 6 misfire counts for all cylinders. This way you get a better idea of all cylinders.

the flashing check engine light is indicating a misfire. if you can't get it scanned for codes, start with the obvious, check plugs, wires, and coil packs first.
