Have it checked for codes. That should give you a starting point for diagnostics.

Check engine light on steady = have your vehicle checked.If it is blinking = have your vehicle checked now.=============================================Just adding to the answer :If your check engine light is blinking that means that an engine cylindermisfire has been detected . You can drive it in for repair , just avoid anyrapid acceleration or deceleration because you can damage the catalyticconverter

I sometimes sputter when I'm nervous. Please reword the question and tell me what year and engine and describe what you are doing with the car when "sputtering" occurs. Would help if you can think of additional description of what you mean by "sputtering".

When the service engine soon light is blinking, it means a subsystem of the engine has failed. It could be something as simple as a broken gas cap, or it could be a serious engine problem. If the Explorer is still running fine, it is best to get the codes read at an auto service shop to determine the next course of action.

When ever the service engine light is blinking you risk doing serious damage to the catalytic converter. I would recommend not using the vehicle until the problem is fixed. Replacing the cat can be very expensive. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose and correct the engine problem.

In the manual for my car it says a blinking, yellow check engine light means the catalytic converter is malfunctioning.

Normally a flashing check engine light means you have a misfire. Do not ignore this as an engine misfire will damage the O2 sensor and the catalytic converter which are very expensive to replace. Have this repaired immediately.

ITS HARD TO TELL THE SPECIFIC REASON A WARNING LIGHT LIGHTS UP ON A VEHICLE WITH OUT CHECKING IT, BUT A BLINKING LIGHT USUALLY MEANS HAVE CHECK ASAP. A STEADY LIGHT MEANS HAVE IT CHECK AT YOUR CONVINIENCE.

If you have not changed your fuel filter do so; if it still acts up it is likely caused by a lack of fuel; have fuel pump checked.
