    Flashing is bad it implies the catalytic converter is suffering damage.Was the coil bad, could it have a bad spark plug, leaking or otherwise bad fuel injector, vacuum leak or low compression in that cylinder? There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
