Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Most of the time this is caused by a cylinder misfire. It commonly causes the vehicle to run like this and the check engine light to flash. You need to have the computer scanned for codes to see what the computer is seeing. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If you bring me the codes I can let you know what it may be. It sounds like you may have a bad coil or maybe you just need a tune up.
