Hello K Martin.
A flashing check engine light indicates engine misfire.
Misfire will reduce power.
Misfire is usually caused by poor ignition (spark plugs, wires, ignition coil).
These are the first things a mechanic will check.
If they are OK then fuel systems will be looked at.
After that usually mechanical items such as timing components, valve train etc.
If you are a handy fellow and it's been a while it may be a good time to replace spark plugs and ignition wires.
Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Car won't start. Sounds like the engine flooded. Not the starter. Also loses power going uphill and when accelerating.


Check Engine Light flashing when accelerating ,severe engine misfire . Something in the ignition system is breaking down under a load . If the starter engages an spins the engine when you turn the key to start an it doesn't start an run , it has no spark or fuel pressure . If you don't know this or how to diagnose .suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Pull two plug wires off the top of the same coil an crank the engine , if you do not see a spark jump from one coil tower to the other you have an ignition system problem . ignition module or crankshaft position sensor

Hi there:
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2004 grand cherokee 4.0l one day it will run fine the next day it runs rough rich and when i step on the gas the engine cuts out and spits and sputters


When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

you have an engine miss, any time the check engine light starts flashing the engine is missing, should be an easy fix sounds like either a bad spark plug or a bad plug wire if you have the codes checked there should be a code telling you what cylinder is missing, but if i were you i would tune up the engine all new plugs and wires and filters......GOOD LUCK

2003 Expedition engine light flashes on/off when eccellerating took to Auto zone, code was P0301, changed out plug and COP still doing smaething. It sputters when accelerating. What wrong with it?


First, are you certain you changed the plug for number 1? If so, check the power connection to the COP. If it is dirty or loose that can cause a misfire also.

98 camaro manual tran..sputters and has acceleration prob.chek enjine flashing,,exhaust rumble and sputters back fires occasionally at start of engine slowly accelerates


Hi:
Not sure of all what is wrong, but one thing I can suggest is to have your computer codes downloaded to see what it is showing as a fault code. Only a few codes can cause the check engine light to flash, and the most common is a cylinder misfire. Your car most likely has an ignition module or coil pack failing, and that problem is causing most of your symptoms. You can usually get your local autoparts store, such as Autozone, to scan your car for free, and tell you what is tripping the check engine light, and then you can go from there!
