Sounds a lot like a plugged converter. The blinking means damage is being done to the converter. If. The converter turns out bad, there is likley a 2nd problem that caused it. Need to get the codes read from the computer for starters.

Hi paul. Thanks for the advice but the problem is, the fast blinking check engine light does not appear regularly. Which also means I cannot get the code unless it appears. It shows up once in a while. Can I still get the code even it does not appear? Just so to know what is causing the problem.

Hey there you guys. I've tried to let my cas be diagnosed and the result was a faulty airflow sensor
--- i've got it fixed but the problem is after a day of using it in perfect condition, the problem showed up again. CEL lit up the way it did before and the same process happened, engine died while driving, i'm planning to get it checked once again but its causing me alot of time and resources.

If you have any suggestions please post them and they would be much appreciated.
-thanks.

Was the Sensor replaced just because the code appeared or was it tested?

If it was indeed bad, you may have got a faulty/defective sensor. There may be an air leak into the snorkel or a problem with the connector or wiring.

I got the same problem, only my CEL does not go out at all even if the engine is dead and the key pulled out. What could be the problem?

You need to start a new question. This one is almost ten years old, and was a conversation between two people. It is now listed as having received a reply, so none of the other experts are going to see it or have a chance to reply. That does you a disservice. Also, you have a very different set of symptoms, so knowing what was done here is not going to apply to your car. That can result in wasted time, wasted money, and lots of frustration.

When you post your question, PLEASE list the engine size, mileage, and transmission type so we don't have to guess or waste time asking. Also include what you've already done, and the results, so we don't have to cover that again.
