Missfires are a common cause of both of your symptoms. Some things you can check are the plugs, condition of the ignition wires, condtion of the cap and rotor.

Scanning the computer will give you a trouble code which will help you narrow down the problem. For example when you scan the computer it may shoe a code P0302 which would indicate that the number 2 culinder has a misfire. You can then go right to the nuber two cylinder and check for spark, Check the condition of the spark plug , check for carbon tracking, etc.

Why does car shut off and checking light randomly blinks


Check engine light or MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light) comes on when there is something wrong with the engine's injection system or when the car stalled. Get it scanned for Error Code and fix the error, usually engine sensors. Electrical connectors to the sensors coming loose would give the same problem.

96 lexus es 300 blinking check engine light


Hi there;

#4 Miss-fire. All the things you are saying make a lot of sense. When the light is blinking the cylinder is actualy misfiring, & the smell you are smelling is the fuel that is not burning in the engine burning in the exahst. This can cause a lot of damage to the exausht if it is not repaired..
There is still a couple of things that need to be checked, first he needs to check to see if it is possibly a fuel injector that is sticking. He can do this easily by moving the #4 injector to another cylinder & run the car. When it starts missfiring he will need to see if it is still #4 or if it is the cylinder that he moved the injector to. if it is the new cylinder it is obviously the injector, if it is still #4 he will need to look into the possibility of the EGR valve sticking open or some other issue to do with valve timing or low compression.
I hope this helps
Farrout!
