You will have to get a engine scanner and scan the engine. And it will give you the trouble code or codes, and then fix the problem. The computor is seeing a problem

2002 silverado flashing service engine soon light?

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area. A flashing light is usually an indication of a misfire.
