Check Engine Light Codes

Does anyone know what it means when the check engine light flashes for about 5-6 times. ???? That did it to us last night but never again. And I can't take it to AutoZone unless the light is on.

not true...

..under normal circumstances, whenever the MIL comes on, a code has been stored into the long term memory and they should be able to retrieve it...if they say they can't, urge them to try.

a flashing MIL means a misfire has been detected and impending catalyst damage is likely to occur. get it checked out pretty soon...one way or the other
