coolant not low Not sure if its flashing.
Chevy Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 9 months ago

The flashing check engine light is a random multiple misfire ,if he keep driving it will do engine and or catalytic exhaust damage if not we need to check radiator fan , belt and at least a coolant pressure tester to look for any leaks when system under pressure

u have to start there ,how was truck driving prior to this and how many miles on it know

and tell little history on prior work done if any

Please let me know

Thank You

Chevy Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 9 months ago

I would take it in tomorrow , do a coolant flush , replace coolant while they are doing a coolant pressuer tester and then let it run unetil you see clutch fan kick in and make sure we have good heat and we go from there and if possible have it scaned and see if we have fault codes
