Has anything been replaced? Does check engine light flash while driving?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it flashes, also stays steady lit in park and nothing's been replaced
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

When light flashes that means ignition problem. With the type of coil setup this vehicle has it is hard to properly test. I would recommend replacing #3 spark plug to see if that helps, if not replace coil assembly. Here are replacement instructions, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.

Should I get the one with or without ignition
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

You can get one without ignition module, ignition module wouldn't effect just 1 cylinder.

Can I check it with the scanner I have on graph to make sure? What do I look for
Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

No you cant, if anything you could use a spark tester and check to see if cylinder 3 coil lead is putting out good spark.
