May also want to check the module ontop of the transmission, it's located next to the battery, I'm not sure if the part's correct name is a neutral safety switch.

If your check engine light is flashing , an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

I have a 98 mystique, and when the check engine light comes on, I simply disconnect the positive battery terminal for a couple of minutes. When I replace it, the check engine light is cleared. It resets the computer.

Yes, but if it stays on you should plan to take it in soon to have the engine checked. That is why the light is there.

You will have to fix the problem with the car, most places like auto zone can hook up a code scanner to the for free and tell you the reason the check engine light is on, once you get an answer, then you can fix the problem and the light should disappear.

My '97 Mystique 4 cyl calls for 5W-30 oil. Check the owners manual, if you don't have it, google for it. As for brand, I use Pennzoil, but it's all pretty much the same.
