Hello, my name is***** you for the question. A flashing check engine lights typically means that the engine has a misfire. If you do not feel anything then it may be something subtle like a worn spark plug. You need to start by having the computer scanned for codes to see which cylinder it is. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If you have this done bring me the codes and I can tell you what is going on.
