A blinking CEL is very important to address right away, do not wait.
A normal CEL (check engine light) will just be on and while is important it can be overlooked for a short while. Please note it will not pass inspection with this light on. A blinking light means DANGER!
Have an auto parts store read the codes, it will be stored in memory, even if the light went off. That will be the place to start.

How long has it been since you replaced the Air Filter. Suspect the engine is not getting enough air at high throttle position.

The coil could be breaking down under normal operating temps, or the pick inside the distributor. Either that or you may have oxygen sensors that are going bad, do you have a check engine light come on when it acts up?

More than likely you have a misfire due to a coil. In 11 years of working at a ford dealer as a driveabilty specialist I have never seen a crown vic injector fail. If it has a misfire code again I would replace the coil and plug on the appropriate cylinder.
