Question about Ford Taurus
No. A flashing Check Engine light does not mean that the engine is gone. What this means is that you have a problem with your engine management system that will cause rapid damage to the catalytic converter if it is not corrected immediately. You most likely have a severe misfire condition and/or fuel mixture problem. You need to have your engine controller scanned as soon as possible to find the cause of the problem and get it corrected. Severe damage will result if this is not done right away.

SOURCE: Flashing check engine light
you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, these codes will tell you where the problem is,then it can be diagnosed,when the check engine light flashes it means its a sierous problem that will cause converter damage, you dont want to keep driving the car in this condition,have this checked asap.have it scanned, autozone will scan it for free and give you the codes. start with that.it could be a cylinder misfiring or bad sensor causing a misfire, or a bad sparkplug or wire. good luck.
