    I was thinking maybe one of the coils. Have three coils, one for every 2 cylinders. I'll get one replacement and swap them one at a time to see. Would rather spend $50 than $150 to shotgun it. Thanks for the suggestion. Grittyone.

You check the coils with a ohm meter. They should 6-8 thousand ohms at the spark plug connections. One lead to one spark plug connection and the other lead to the other . It's not likely a coil for stalling. If coil , Your car can still run on four cylinders. It can be a ignition module. It fails when it gets extremely hot. The module is located under the coils.

The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

You may have gotten some dirty or rusty gas. Try blowing out your new filter, and see if it's good again. Either that or water in the fuel. Driving with a plugged filter won't cause damage.
