Light flashing indicates a bad miss that could damage the catalytic converter. A coil may be failing after it gets hot or EGR sticking open after being at cruising speeds. Take it and get a tech to check the non continuous test data for specific cylinder misfires and for the EGR position sensor showing the valve is going shut when coming to a stop.

As asked B4 does the 4x4 work or not and was it scanned with a real diagnostic monitor, not just an OBII scan tool. The transfer case shift motor is real common with those as well as the transfer case control module.
