Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Mazda 6.Have you had any repairs performed recently or in trying to fix this?

Have you had a chance to pull the codes and see what was stored? I suspect that since the light was flashing, we are dealing with misfire codes.
