How do I go about diagnosing my vehicle?

How do you go about diagnosing your vehicle? I have a '97 Lincoln Town Car Exec. just recently it has started running rough, like it is choking when I press on the gas and then it acts like it is gasping, then it levels out at a higher speed, but when I slow down it starts all over again and the Check Engine light starts flashing. What's up with that?

you can use the scan tool to diagnose yourself, or you need take your car to the local car repair shop to have a diagnose.
the ford vcm v74 can diagnose your car.

Thank you for your reply. Is it true that you can take your car to Auto Zone or O'Reilly's and they can run a diagnostic at no charge?

yes, it is true, you can check out the code free at auto zone, and you can post the code, then I can give you suggestion.

if you take it to autozone they will scan it ignore any advice they give on what to buy just take printout to a reputable shop, I recommend checking yellow book .com read feedback on shops before going to them do some homework to pick one. get a tech to diag the car most decent shops will diag for about 40 to95 dollars. if you dont like the price you can always decline repair and buy parts and repair manual avoid chains like midas,miniekee, pep boys, there only here to up sale.
