Question about 1997 Isuzu Trooper
A flashing check engine light is usually caused by a misfire. I'm guessing that the engine is running a little rough? Some things you can check are the spark plugs and wires. You can check the wires by spraying them down with soapy water and seeing if they leak.
If the engine is misfiring you can pull each spark plug wire or coil off of the spark plug one at a time with the engine running to see if the engine runs worse or stays the same. Be careful cause you can get zapped by 40,000 + volts and it can tickle a bit. Once you find the cylinder that doesn't change how the engine runs you can focus on that wire and spark plug. Look for carbon tracking on the plug itself. It will look like a dark black line running down the plug and the porcelain will be slightly erodded under it. If you see this you will need to change the plug and wire.
