SOURCE: check engine light blinks

Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.

I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

99 Sun fire check engine light blinks won't go over 35. Thought it was coil pack, now think its TPS. How do I know which?

Have you checked the ecm for trouble codes ?
The blinking light means the problem is serious enough to damage the catalytic converter.
A faulty TPS would cause the engine to be very sluggish, but not cause a miss.

Changed plug, wire , checked coil, still missing on #3 cyl, what do i need to do, engine light blinks

The check engine light blinks when the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the cat converter.
The problem could be spark, fuel, or something mechanical like a bad valve. So if you think the spark is good, the next step would be checking compression and fuel delivery.

Tcs warning light

If a misfire is bad enough the cpu will shut off traction control causing the light to come on. For the engine light to be flashing you need a heavy miss and shouldn't drive it due to potential Cat failure. Changing the coil can fix all issues if that's the only part causing a misfire, typically i would recommend changing the spark plugs while you are in there.

Blinking engine light not the plugs. Is it the timing belt ZTS zetec engine

Generally speaking when the check engine light blinks that means that there is a direct threat of catalytic converter damage. This is generally caused by a dead miss in the engine or bad spark timing, with out having a DTC I cannot specifically say what the problem maybe. However the timing belt wouldn't be a bad place to start, it may have jumped a few teeth and caused a misalignment in the cam timing.

Car engine light on light blinking shaking over due for oil chang

Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.
