A flashing check engine light means excessive fuel in the exhaust. The injector supplies the fuel, but the plug is not firing for some reason, this forces raw fuel into the exhaust and can ruin the catalytic convertor in a short time.

Start the car in the dark, and spray a mist of water around the coil and wires. Do a wiggle test and look for the spark arcing to a ground. Caution...you may get a shock. The 2.0 motors are notorious for coil packs cracking around the base of the individual towers.
