When the Service engine light is blinking that means that your engine is misfiring and can cause damage to the engine and the catalytic converter. Having the car connected to a code reader should explain what is happening and what cylinder(s) are missing or what could be causing the issue

2003 chevy trailblazer service engine soon light


If the service engine soon light is flashing, it means the computer has detected an engine misfire with the potential of catalytic convertor failure. Don't just tune it up. Bring it somewhere they can read the trouble code. Sometimes it will designate which cylinder is having the problem.

Flashing service engine soon light flashes then shut off


Check engine lights have been used for over 30 years and yet most people do not know what they are used for.
The check engine light tells the driver a problem exists with the performance or emissions of the engine. Not the actual engine itself.
Anytime something happens that could affect emissions or performance, the light comes on and a trouble code is set in the computer memory. The driver then has to have the computer scanned for those codes to know what component to have checked.

Service engine soon light is flashing


Have the car scanned for the code's origin. This could mean that the engine will not work as well as it should, and could cause driveability isues.

A constant service engine soon light means that a hard code exists. A flashing light means that an intermittent code exists, but it could become a hard code very quickly.
