    Check Engine Light Flashing?? Need Help ASAP

    hey guys its been along time since ive posted on here cuz ive been away for awhille, but i need help with something, my check engine light has been on since ive bought my protege and i know whats wrong but i just dont have the money to fix it and its not really a major probleme, and the car also runs good. but earlier today i was letting it idle while i was vacuuming the inside of the car and the check engine was on but then it went off and then came back on but now every time i start it and drive it the check engine light flashes. i noticed the computer chips are all plugged. so what could have coused it and why did it do that?

    damn i was afraid of that cuz i took it into the shop to have my belt replaced and to fix it so i didint have to replace my belt every 2 days (a piece of plastic was cutting the belt) and for them to make it stop leaking but the day i got it it broke down again so i took it back and it was because the washed my engine to get all the grease off of it and they got way to much water in there and it flooded it and now about a week later my CEL starts flashing im pissed!!!
