the check engine flashing means the engine is misfiring and can cause catalyst damage ,have it looked at right away,lots of problems with ignition coils and ignition wires causing misfires

Electrical probblems are always the hardest to solve. I don't believe it to be the ecu, because when one fries it doesn't work at all but that may be the case. I believe from what you describe there is a short somewhere between an important censor and the ecu, like mas, 02 or throttle positioning censors. Ive also come across cases of which the catalytic converter was clogged making the car not operate correctly. Hope this helps.

If the light is flashing it means the engine has a misfire that can damage your catalytic convertor which is very expensive. A tuneup might be in order if its never been done, but I have personally seen many bad timing belts and fuel pumps that have gone bad on those vehicles also.

First, make sure your airfilter is not plugged. If it is, the engine is compensating for the lack of air intake. If not, consider replacing the Idle Control Valve. Inquire with an auto parts dealer (store) for this part.
