Eminent engine emission control failure, have the codes checked and repost back here and we can go from there.

Only from what I have heard second hand. Blinking is worse than the check engine light being on solid. Means shut the engine down to avoid more damage.

A blinking check engine light is warning you that the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. The vehicle shouldn't be driven until it's fixed. I'd do a tune up first. HTH. -Jim
