Hello,
When the light is flashing it is far more important to get it fixed rather that if the light just stays on.
What usually happens is the computer picks up a misfire in one or more of the cylinders and makes the light flash because if left untended it will ruin the cat convertor and it is very costly.
The misfire can come from something as simple as a tank of bad gas to a spark plug or a plug wire, but as it stands right now it wont be expensive to fix but if you continue to drive it, it will ruin the converter.
