      ..I can't guess what the code is but a flashing CEL means park it ASAP before severe damage...;)

      ..It's telling you it now has a severe fault and is not drivable..You may need to have it professionally diagnosed by a shop that has the good readers but as for why it can't detect it on a basic reader, I haven't a clue...:dunno:

      There are so many possibilities

      The coil pack is just one of the things that can cause the missing......you should read the threads that deal with engines missing......I went through about 10 possibilities before I found my problem....my problem was a cracked head.......

      Welcome to the forum! If you are having trouble reading the codes sometimes the OBD2 port code be bad or there could be an issue with the computer itself. I would definitely start with the cheaper route and replace the coil packs if you don't want to go to a dealer and see what codes they can pull
