Re: Check engine light has been on and now is...
When the light is flashing its indicating a problem that can cause more severe problems and should be diagnosed as soon as possible From what youve indicated it may be a misfire code which will cause catalytic converter problems

This code is set when the transmission control module detects improper voltage at the torque converter clutch. This can be caused by low tranny fluid/dirty tranny fluid/defective torque converter clutch solenoid/electrical connections to from solenoid
This should be an indication that the PCM has detected a transmission issue. The transmission fluid level may be low, can you verify the level? Please read your owners manual for proper fluid type and follow the instructions to properly check the level. The car must be on level ground. You may need to send the car to the dealer for diagnostics if you don't find anything. Please let me know how you made out, good luck.
Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.
If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.
Clogged fuel filter Low fuel pump pressure
Defective Catalytic converter Defective EGR valve
Incorrect fuel pinched/kinked fuel line
Malfunctioning Throttle position sensor Defective MAP sensor
...if your check engine light is flashing, then you are burning excessive amounts of gas which would indicate a rich condition.
MAKE SURE YOUR ENGINE FINE TUNE. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY.DO A FILTER AND TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE IF ONE HAS NOT BEEN DONE A LONG LONG TIME.SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING. IF FLUID + FLUID LEVEL OKAY AND FILTER HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.YOUR TV SHIFT CABLE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING. IF YOU SEE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING LOOK FOR TRANSMISSION FAULT CODES LIKE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SOLENOID OPEN OR FAULTY TORQUE CONVERTER.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY SHIFT VALVES.BEST GET CAR CODE SCAN.YOU HAVE MANY SHIFT VALVES.
There are many probable causes for this problem, you said checked the transmission fluid and it looked OK, first thing you should do is to make sure the fluid quality and level is good if positive and still having problems I recommend changing the fluid and fluid filter.
If the problem still persists, then it might be caused by Transmission Control Module, a sensor or solenoid, or the circuit itself ( you mentioned the flashing engine light, the problem can be caused by a faulty sensor or circuitry). if the first simple remedy doesn't work I recommend taking the car to a professional to have a look at the probable problematic parts I mentioned.
Have a look at it and let me know if you need more advice.
sounds like u have a bad vss (speed sensor ) its located on the transmission have some one drive the car with a scan tool and check the speed when it goes to zero the scant tool will also the computer thinks you stopped pretty easy fix located on the output side of the trans passanger side
you need a transmission computer located in floor on passenger side under carpet attached to the ecu computer you can get one on ebay for 120 dollars ALOT LESS THE parts store and it comes with a lifetime warranty
