Welcome to stangnet, I'll move your thread over to the tech subforum where you can get some help.

Good to have you here.

Hey there Fadee, welcome. I'm having the same problem, but I'm working on it. So at this point I can't / won't offer any help. But I'm waiting for parts that should arrive tomorrow, and if all goes well, I'll pass on the info.

Word of warning though, the flashing CEL (Check Engine Light) is BAD. Most people recommend pulling over immediately and getting towed to your favorite repair shop. My favorite repair shop is in my driveway. So that's where it's been the past few days awaiting parts. So shot me a line tomorrow (in case I forget) and I'll let you know if I'm back on the road or not.

Best of luck!

Blinking check engine light indicates a very severe misfire.

There still should be some stored codes present even if the check engine light goes away. What are you using to pull the codes? A basic reader, or a scanner with a few more bells and whistles that can see code history?

Anything you can think of that would cause a bad misfire? Have you done any modifications? Different spark plugs? Any underhood damage that you can see?

Wow sounds serious. Sorry your vehicle isn't under warranty. I was thinking someone changed your rev limiter to allow you to go in the red, between 7000 & 8000rpm. Sounds like people are saying it's an engine misfire. Hope you got that sorted out and with not too much $
