gmiller0737 Kinda strange the code was not in History,If misfire went away light would stop blinking but normaly a code would be stored in history,Someone with a real scan tool (Not a code reader) could access the OBD 2 Mode 6 Data & see what cylinder was misfiring,I know My Snap On Solus Pro can do it not sure about some of the other scan tools on the market?

dananderson12 thanks gmiller0737 why would the check engine light come on blink and not come back? and why wouldnt my jeep have thrown a code?

gmiller0737 If the light was flashing that is supposed to signify a misfire condition that has the potential to damage the Catylitic Converter if you continue to operate it for a ong period of time,When was the Last Tune Up? May be time to think about doing Spark Plugs,Spark Plug Wires & Distributor Cap & Rotor,Also pull the coil wire off at the coil & look for corrosion it's not too uncommon for corrosion to form there.

HELPP check engine light? ran weird.

So today I got in my 1999 5 speed jeep wrangler to go to work. when I started up the jeep and right away it was running like shit, shaking and hesitating. but It was going. I made it about a mile before the check engine light started blinking, it felt like it was dying so I high tailed it home. I looked under the hood to see if anything visible was wrong. nope. got back in it and things seemed fine.. I hooked up a computer, no codes were thrown.
I was lucky not to be out of the neighborhood. I just dont want to be an hour away and this happen. Any ideas what it is or advice?

p.s I have already replaced the ignition switch, and think i might need to replace the lock cylinder. i can pull the key out while driving. but it has never effected the way it drove. it didnt bother anything actually. so I dont think thats the problem
