if it is flashing then it is misfire and you need to preform a tune up replace plugs and coil on plug in the cylinder that is misfire
check for codes and the code will tell you which cylinder is misfire
some parts stores will check the code for free
Thanks Steve! Is it OK to drive it short distances in this condition?
yes very short you do not want to damage the engine and plug up the cat convertor
any other questions on your concern?
