Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My check engine light came on during my drive into work.  When it came on, it started to run a little rough.  I continued to drive into work while the light was flashing.  When I came to my first stop, the car at idle was running very rough.  It continue to run rough until I got to about 45 mph when it became less noticeable.

When the CEL is flashing that means a more serious problem has been detected than a steady light. Do what TST said, soon

When I got back in the car this evening, the engine light stopped flashing but just stayed on. For some reason the VSA light is on and staying on as well.
