2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4.8L V8 from North America
Like a rock. It will not die, still going strong, rust free, tons of miles
Transmission was rebuilt 23,000 miles ago.
Brake master cylinder.
Tailgate was replaced with '04 salvage.
Original exhaust rusted from Wisconsin winters.
Check engine light blinks; no one can seem figure what be the problem.
The truck was always reliable, starts up, and still runs relatively like new. I never had any major expensive problems besides getting the transmission fixed! This truck has done me well throughout the years; before I had two Caprices ('77 and '89); both were great long lasting cars. I need a truck for hauling, so will replace with another old Chevy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If the check engine light blinks, it indicates that the engine is misfiring and dumping unburned fuel into the exhaust. The misfire needs to be corrected, or else the catalytic converter could become red hot and cause the car to catch fire. Hence the flashing light. It catches the driver's attention more readily. It is telling you to stop operating the vehicle until the problem is fixed. A potentially hazardous condition. Get it fixed ASAP. Any mechanic that actually knows engines should be able to solve this easily. Good luck!

That’s a bit of an overreaction. It should be fixed, but is not that urgent. An oil light coming on requires a more urgent response than a check engine light, blinking or not.
