What year is your car and what engine? That makes a lot of difference. What the pulses should indicate is a code 12 is stored (code 55 is usually an "all clear" code, meaning that the ECU is done reading out the codes that are stored). If you got only a 55, it would mean you have no codes. 1255 means that 12 is the only code you have stored.

SOURCE: missing, loss of power, etc.
sounds from afar like a problem i had after installing after market spark plug cables on a diff. car. make sure you have factory-quality/ even mits. brand cables. (right parts vs. after mkt.?- no contest.)

lt sounds very much like you have bent a valve stem. There is a quick way to check the probability of this, firstly get a peice of wood, about 50mm x 50mm and about 6oomm long (or 2x2 and2ft long in old money) With the engine idleing place one end of the peice of wood on the top of the cam cover, (thats where you put the oil in) and the other placed against your ear. you will be able to hear the valves rattle if they are bent, and sorry mate, if thats the case, it's an engine head rebuild or replace with either a new block or one from the wreking yard.
