My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Your engine is misfiring. When the check engine light starts blinking, that means the misfire is severe enough to damage the catalytic converter. As for the ABS light coming on when you hit a bump, that’s probably due to loose or damaged wiring somewhere. The brake warning light may also come on when you hit a bump or take a curve if the brake fluid level is low. I recommend having both these concerned diagnosed and repaired by a professional. YourMechanic is an excellent option since we come to your home or office.
