It also is shaking,does not want to go over 60mph, and acts like it's going to stall out. someone please help! I just bought tthis vehicle 2 months ago. I just had the fuel sensor replaced about 3 weeks ago, coolant flush, new air filter, and oil changed.

you most likely have a misfire and blinking light is telling you that you may cause more damage if you continue to drive.
A blinking CEL means that there is a misfire that is damaging the catalytic convertor...have that misfire fixed so you don't have to spend extra money on an expensive repair later.
