While driving my car, the engine will all of a sudden slow down even when I have my foot on the gas. RPM's will remain constant. The check engine light is on and sometimes starts flashing.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check engine light on

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.
