2006 Kia Optima LX V-6 Engine light flashing engine running rough

\015 The engine has 182,000 miles on it and has been running great. As I was driving at about thirty miles per hour, the engine started to run rough as if "missing" and the engine light started flashing off and on.\015

A flashing check engine light means FIX IT NOW! It probably has a dead cylinder (most likely an igniton issue).Most likely,the PCM has figured out which cylinder it is aand turned off the fuel injector to it.You can get a cheap,basic code scanner(mine was 50 bucks at Harbor Freight Tools,made by Cen-Tech).It can read the code and has a book to tell you what the code means.If you find the cylinder with the misfire and correct the problem,you have to clear the code to restore fuel to that cylinder(this cheap tool does that,too).

I have a 2004 Kia Optima 4-cyl w/AT. I was driving about an hour ago. The car was running fine and I made a left turn. All at once the car started running rough. Then the check engine light came on, but would go off if I left off the gas (although the engine still ran rough). A minute or so later I stopped at a stop sign. I turned the car off and cranked it up again. Still ran rough, and now the light stays on. Could this be a simple fix? About 64,000 miles on the car.

Started to notice that the engine began to run rough then would be ok for awhile. The service engine soon light would come on when it ran rough and then go out when it ran fine. Now the service engine light is on most of the time and when you accelerate it begins to flash, then stops flashing when you let off the gas. Light still occasionally goes off but not as often. Seems to be worse with cooler outside temperature.

Rough idle I just changed my spark plugs and the EGR valve in my '96 tahoe and finally got the check engine light to turn off. But then I was driving on the highway going up a hill, the engine started running rough and the engine light started flashing. It ran better at the top of the hill but the light stayed on but when I turned it off and turned it back on after a while the light was off . It happened to me a couple of days ago and it hasn't done it since. If the light goes on I can check it

My 2001 Jeep Cherokkee engine light has been on for a couple of years and at one point it was running very rough and I spent about 2 grand having 2 different shops work on it at that time This work (fuel injector cleaning, new plugs, etc,they also told me I needed a new alternator which I suspect that was not part of the problem) did not totally solve the problem and now it is running rough again.
