Change the fuel filter. and clean the mass air flow sensor usein a can of carb cleaner from any parts shop. depending on the miles on your car the timing belt mit have jumped a tooth. have to change it every 120.000 km.

A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

A/C compressor going bad ,maybe ! Had 03 focus same problem ,without the A/C on the car ran great . When turning on the A/C the PCM - engine computer is suppose to raise the vehicle idle so it doesn't stall . How does your car run without the A/C on .

You can do both IF there is nothing wrong with your car it will go off on its own usually between 2 and 4 hours of driving. Otherwise it may need to get reset if it still thinks there is a problem
