Step 1 - Get Code Reader

Step 2 - Read Code

Step 3 - ???

Step 4 - Profit!!!


Oh and the flashing is telling you to stop running the car because a sensor could be detecting a major problem that will affect/destroy your catalytic converter

Yea, same thing happen to me. But, he should still get a scanner and check the code then began diagnosing the problem, rather then post a video and expect us to know his exact problem. idk that's my 2 cents worth

Re: flashing checkengine light

def check the code then come back here! it would have been helpful to rev the engine a little in park in the vid.. and turn the music down...just a future troubleshoot video FYI..

ill put a bet on a misfire, one of the most common things to cause the blinking light...but again get the code checked... if you can get it to an auto zone or something they will do it for free...not sure if they lend the code readers... you'll have a few codes probably, give them to us.
