    Just started a few minutes ago while coming home. A misfire is there and I'm thinking bad coil or coils. Anything else to consider?

    The CE light has some info for you. You just need to get that info via code reader. I would start there.

    Well of course but I've never experienced it when it continuously flashes on and off. Don't really want to drive it but I'll definitely get them pulled somehow.

    Constant flashing is an active misfire.

    Number 4 coil went bad. Replaced it and all is back to normal.
