Good Evening,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with your Infiniti. If you are experiencing a shaking and the check engine light is blinking. Then the engine is misfiring. Without a code reader to obtain the trouble codes or a scan tool to verify which cylinder is misfiring, then it will be very difficult and time consuming to pinpoint the problem.

That's it?
Is the car safe to drive for 2 hours to get home?
Expert:  Joshua Davenport replied 11 months ago.

The car is going to be driveable, but with the engine misfiring you run the risk of damaging a catalytic convertor. There are a number of parts that can cause a misfire, but without the correct tools to pinpoint what is causing it, the problem is difficult to diagnose.
