Hello and Welcome back to justanswer..

Certainly a bad o2 sensor ( which this code relates to ) ..or bad wiring to it etc , can cause your engine to run badly as you describe.

If the light is flashing -and you have this code as you describe, the actual fault / problem , needs addressing / sorting out - just re setting the Pcm / clearing the code will not cure this permanently - the fault light will keep coming back on until the root cause has been cured -

So work through in that area as above to get to the bottom of this and get this sorted.
