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.

If you have spark, and fuel , and still no start, I'd first pull out the spark plugs and make sure they are not fuel fouled. Dry or replace as necessary. Do you have compression ?

1997 Chevy Malibu will start and then sputter.

It sounds like your engine is not getting a proper spark because of bad plugs. Check your spark plugs. To be safe install new ones anyway. I prefer NGK plugs.

take a look at the coil pack. its seperate from the distributor. you can follow the wire on the distributor cap that says coil to find it. even though it may appear ok it could still be going bad. that would cause static and a sputter condition. its a good starting point. also, fuel pump could be getting weak. but the coil and plug wires would be your best bet to start with
