A blinking Check engine light is a misfire.
Change your plugs and wires.
For now, reach in the engine and push your spark plug wires down into the engine. One will probably push in a little. Don't bother trying to fix it and re-install. It won't last. The engine will warm up and start skipping again.
I bought NAPA Belden wires with a lifetime warranty for $64. It seems because of the design of the boots/engine the heat eventually gets to them, and the wires pop themselves of the plug. I know they will too eventually fail so i bought ones with a lifetime warranty.
BTW, it ain't easy. You need a sparkplug socket to hold the plug while installing/removing. An array of 3/8 extentions and swivels will be handy, and a small screwdriver or pick to pop the wire looms. IMO the wires were harder than the plugs.
Di-electric greese. Get a big tube. And while your at it, greese up your fuel injector plugs, you'll need to unplug them for access to the spark plugs.
Someone on this site mentioned unbolting the wiring junction block on the passenger side for better access. I did'nt, but i guess it only takes a few bolts, and makes it much easier.
Unhook your battery for safety and for check engine light reset.
