Your check engine light is intended as a signal to the driver that there is an issue requiring attention. Modern vehicles are run by a system of computers under the hood. These computers communicate vital information to one another on things like fuel-to-air ratios, RPMs, and emission levels. When a problem is detected, your vehicle will turn on the check engine light-- part of your vehicle’s On Board Diagnostics system-- to tell you that something is wrong.
A flashing check engine light indicates a severe problem, and it is strongly recommended that you pull over as soon as it is safe, turn the vehicle off, and have it towed to your service facility. This could indicate a major misfire, which causes your powertrain to run hot and can have negative effect on components in the emission system, including your catalytic converter.
