What's wrong when my check engine is flashing and my 2004 Toyota Camry feels like its vibrating when I drive?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Fred, You may be experiencing a misfire of spark across one or more cylinders, I suggest you have your check engine light read for codes for further diagnosis.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Greetings Fred, When your check engine light is flashing at you - it means: DANGER, DANGER! Do Not Drive your Camry. Tow it to your repair shop of choice and let them know the check engine light is flashing and what the symptoms are with the vibration while driving. Hopefully you have not done permanent damage to your vehicle's engine.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at A flashing check engine light is a warning that whatever is going wrong with your engine it is damaging your catalyst.
