Its most likely the ETC sensor. Its located on the side of the head on the cooling flange. Very easy to replace just unplug the wire and slide the clip out of the side. You can get one from VW for about $25. Make sure to get a new o-ring with it.

The light blinks to let the driver know the problem is serious enough to damage the catalytic converter.
If you know for a fact cylinder 4 is getting a hot spark, it could be the fuel injector. Code 304 means there is no power from cylinder 4.

The engine light on my 96 merc cougar XR7 is on. Car shakes bad when i accelerate and engine light begins to blink. I'm embaressed to say my engine light has been on for sometime but was told it c

The check engine light needs to be addressed. Yes it could be a sensor but you need to know.
The light blinking means the problem is serious, such as a dead miss on one or more cylinders. The light being on means something is happening with the engine performance that could damage the catalytic converter.
Get the computer scanned - most auto parts stores will do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you have the codes research them online or here.
