it has an engine missfire. you need to have it checked out to see what part has failed, could be plugs, wires, coil, module, injector or vacuum leak. let a shop do this for you.

Thanks Roy,

We had it towed in to the dealer due to we don't know of a good mechanic Berwyn Il.

Roy, are you located in Berwyn Illinois ?
WHEN THE CHECK EINGINE LIGHT IS FLASHING , INDICATES A CYLINDER MISFIRE , FIND OUT WHAT CODE IS STORED IN THE COMPUTER , AND I WOULD NOT RECC DRIVING THE CAR , AS TO MIGHT RUIN THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER
