Could definitely be a misfire. I have always been told its the spark plugs whenever the check engine light flashes after hesitation like that.

Could possiblty be an o2 sensor, or if it has the 3.8 engine in it make sure there isnt a crack in any of the coils.

Check engine light flashing in 2006 chevy hhr


If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.

Flashing check engine light on 1997 Monte Carlo


If the CHECK ENGINE light come on, the PCM (computer car) have stored a fault code there; I suggest scanned this and note what fault code is there. Sometimes Autozone or AutoShop make this reader with OBD tools for free.

Keep in touch.

I have a 98 Acura TL 3.2. The check engine light has been on for a while and one of the O2 sensors was on the diagnostic code. I opted out of replaceing it for a while and now I have a flashing check...


When O2 sensor is bad the check engine light coming on is a warning. If you leave it go the computer will go into "limp" mode till it is replaced. You have to give the computer time to recalibrate itself after replacing, up to 150 or so....

Check Engine light & slight hesitation


If you look under the cat. converter there might be a plug that you can remove to clean it out with.If you remove the plug then just rib - up the engine a time or two .That will clean it out for you.If the code that Auto Zone pulled up was PO420 then you might start by replacing the 02 sensor that's right before the cat. converter.
