A CEL flashing means there is probably a misfire. You can have the car scanned for the codes to see what cylinder is the issue. If you want to try repairing yourself, have your local auto part store scan the car and post the 4 digit fault codes back here for more help. if you let your car continue to misfire, raw fuel can enter the catalytic converter clogging it up and then add more to your repair vs a spark plug or coil.
