Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes and write them down. You can have this done at an auto parts store. I think it could mean something wrong with the catalytic converter. Just have the vehicles scanned to see what the problem is.

If that light is coming then there will be a code stored and can be retrieved !

Flashing check engine light means miss-fire(s) occurring. Driving it with a flashing check engine light may lead to catalytic converter destruction. Do some reading at the link I will post below.
