It has a misfire for sure. Need to have it scanned to find out which cylinder it is then i can tell you the proper diagnostic routine. Autozone scans them for free.

If the check engine light is on, you need to scan the computer for trouble codes next. The codes may direct you to the problem area.
You can research "GM trouble codes" online to get the procedure and the meaning of the codes you retrieve.

This sounds like a mass air flow sensor is malfunctioning. You should have a check engine light on. Or it should come on when it is hesitating. I would suggest taking it to Autozone and they will run diagnostics for free. And if it is the MAF sensor, then it will come up on their scanner.

Service engine soon light blinking /car backfiring and missing


If your check engine light is blinking, you can take your car to Autozone, Advanced Auto or other parts house and ask them to get the engine codes. This ios a FREE service. It sounds like your camshaft positioning sensor, Cam Positioning sensor is bad. This is how comuterized systems tell where the cam and crackshaft are to set the timing. It sounds like you have timing issues.

Service engine soon light comes on all the time


Very common. Over time the O@ sensor builds up carbon from your exhaust which causes it to mis-read what the fuel air mixture is leaving the engine. This is a very common easily fixed problem.

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple
