2000 Lexus RX300 Question: Engine Light Flashing

So my engine light has been on for months and they just diagnosed it as an electrical issue, that it was not a big deal. Today my engine light started flashing and my car started shaking. Every time I would accelerate it would shake more. Some people have told me it could be a possible misfire? Any thoughts?

    That car is not that complex. People frequently fight with Evap Emission codes on that car, usually the emission control charcoal canister assembly goes bad, but the problem you have now will most likely be a failed ignition coil see them fail a lot.
