My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The flashing light flashes to indicate there is a cylinder misfire detected.The reason it is designed to flash is because a misfire can damage the catalytic converter.In some cases the misfire will cause fuel to build up in the catalytic converter and can restrict the converter.If you have not had an exhaust back pressure test done this should be done to see if you have a restricted catalytic converter needing replaced.If this has been done and found to be o.k. let me know.

With an exhaust back pressure test you want to thread a back pressure tester into the pre-catalytic converter oxygen sensor port with the oxygen sensor removed. Then start the engine and run it at idle and revved up and your exhaust back pressure should not exceed 1.5 psi at any RPM range.
The compression test results here looked to be okay is none are 20 psi or more in difference. The compression is a little lower than normal which in some cases can indicate a problem with timing. I would have the fuel injectors tested to make sure they are operating properly and have the timing inspected to make sure that there are no issues there as well.
I apologize my info isn't helping here.I will have to open this question up for others here to see if they can assist further on this as someone else here may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.

Hi again -
Im sorry for the delay- To explain, because you had had an ongoing discussion with a previous expert, time for the question had passed and it timed out - so I lost you ! Im sorry about that , its just the way the system works - I have no control over that Im afraid.
As its been a couple of days now since you said you ordered the coils, Im assuming you have got them and tried them by now.... so how are things ? Can you bring me up to date?
