    2002 Lexus IS 300 check engine light is flashing and running rough. Just started out of the blue. Had thermostat go out earlier and replaced. Car ran fine for a while but then this started this afternoon. Is it safe to drive to the mechanic?

The temperature sensor might be bad. I had the same problem, changed the plugs, wires, rotors, etc and nothing helped. Changed the temperature sensor and it worked fine.

Seems like a timing sensor maybe out. Get a computer diagnosis done on the car from a local garage and check that all electronics are functioning properly. That might identify the problem. Also maybe try some of the petrol additives which clear the petrol lines out. Simply add a bottle when u next fill up. Hope that helps.

Hey Doug. I would change the cam sensor and see it that takes your light on. The misfire may errase with a new cam sensor. I would hold off on the crank, until I changed the cam sensor. If it still runs rough, then maybe try the crank sensor. It is possible they didn't gap the #8 plug right or it was a bad plug. I would try the cam Doug. I would hold off on the crank.

My check engine light was flashing and the engine is running rough

a flashing check engine light indicates a misfire. depending on the vehicle it could be as simple as new spark plug wires

you need to have it connected to an OBD2 machine and watch if you are missing the cam sensor showing RPMs
or if your missing crank sensors RPMs,
it could be a wiring problem or computer if your seeing the RPMs from both sensors,and the last thing i would check is hooking up a fuel gauge to the reed valve and watch what fuel pressure you have while cranking,if the cam sensor is the culprit it will turn the fuel off after the cranking.
