Broken Van

So we went out to pick up gift cert's because we wanted to go out to home hardware and start buying for our bathroom. The check engine light was on and was flashing. While Gerald patiently (lol) waited for me in the van he looked through the manual. Basically if it's a solid light and it continues to go on for a few separate drives - get it checked. If it flashes go get it checked immediately because something about the cadallidic (spelling??) convertor going to break.....so our was flashing and was getting a pretty bad knock. So we went home instead and Gerald is going to try and fix it. I said, isn't fixing an engine a "mechanic" job....he said he can do a "backyard" job and see if it works, I guess he has an idea of what's wrong. So I hope I have a vehicle tomorrow since I have 3 things planned to go to......and I don't really want to miss.

Sounds so familiar. Not too long ago our van had engine light flashing - on permanently. Really sucks eh? Hope it is fixable.
