I was wrong....check engine light is solid
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Another correction.....it started blinking once I starting driving....I came to a stop and it continues to blink. It was solid when I started it up....

Sorry about the wait. The symoptom you are experiencing can be caused by a misfire usually due to faulty spark plugs or ignition coil. Do you have a way to scan the check engine light codes, if not you can get it scanned from auto part stroe for free. That will give you an idea which cylinder is misfiring.
