A flashing check engine light normally means you have a misfire.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

If the check engine light flashes an engine cylinder misfire has been detected Avoid any heavy acceleration / decelleration and have the vehicle scanned for any trouble code(s) in order to diagnose and repair the problem

The 1995 Chevrolet Geo flashing amber engine light is an indication that the engine needs to be checked soon. A red flashing engine light is an indication the engine needs to be checked immediately.

The engine is not hitting on all cylinders or the distributor (electronic or manual) needs adjustment.

When you get a po300 code and the check engine light flashes it to let you know to turn off the enging because you are starting to damage the catalatic converter, I screwed up mine by driving it it was a bad cam sensor

P0300 is a random cylinder misfire. Ensure engine is properly tuned.

Cycle the ignition on/off/on/off/on and count the flashes of the check engine light. A pattern of two flashes, pause, two flashes would be a code 22.

On some vehicles turning the key on, off,on,off,on will make the check engine light flash the code. Three flashes, pause, three flashes would be 33 for example. If that doesn't work you will have to have it checked with a scan tool.

1990 Mazda 323:The check engine light intermittently flashes a series of long and short intervals. A long flash is followed by 5 short flashes. Then another long flash is followed by 7 short flashes, a pause, and 9 more short flashes. How should I interpret this code?

A flashing check engine light indicates a "catalyst damaging" misfire. Do not drive while light is flashing. It can(or already has) cause damage to your catalytic converter which can be very expensive to replace. It is likely you have an ignition problem on one cylinder. Bad coil or wire or something like that. It is not uncommon for that to be an intermittent problem. Your check engine light only flashes when it detects the misfire is present at that time. The regular check engine light will remain on to remind you there is a problem that needs addressed.

It is important to pay attention and understand why the warning lights come on. The Check Engine light will flash because there is in issue within the cars engine, the number of flashes usually indicate the code number.

Since the check engine light comes on, start by having the code pulled from the computer that is causing the check engine light to come on. Most auto parts stores will do this for free and tell you what might be wrong.
