Hello my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me how the vehicle runs besides the check engine light being on? How many miles are on it? What size engine do you have?

cel flashes on wide open throttle. v8 n*

When it flashes do you feel a misfire? Is wide open throttle the only time this occurs?

misfire is present during idle as well

Thank you. The issue you are having is for a lean condition. This is what is causing the misfire and the check engine light. When this occurs it is because there is either too much air entering the engine or there is not enough fuel. Being that this is just for the right side of the engine I would start by looking to see if there are any bad vacuum hoses. If all of the hoses are fine then I would suspect a clogged injector or low fuel pressure. I would have the injectors professionally cleaned and I would also check the fuel pressure to make sure that it is not a fuel pump that is failing. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you nee further help.
