I am new to the Lincoln MKX forum. I would appreciate any input regarding my concern. Until last evening, my 2007 Lincoln MKX has been running smoothly. After my last evening errand, I started my MKX to travel home. Immediately upon starting the engine, I could feel a slight hesitation in the engine as if the idle was slightly off. The service indicator light began flashing; that continued. I turned off the engine and checked my oil level. The oil level was within normal range. When I restarted the car, the service engine light continued to blink. Does anyone have a suggestion as what I should check? About six weeks ago, I did have a Ford dealership replace my Lincoln's leaking gas tank that was a recall issue. Other than that, I have had no recent mechanical repairs or issues. This just happened unexpectedly. Your input would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

You should have read your owner's manual which tells you what to do in this situation.  If it's blinking that means a misfire and you shouldn't continue driving or you can do additional damage.   You'll need a mechanic to read the codes to figure out where to start troubleshooting.  Could be a bad coil or plug or injector or the PCM.
