The coil for that cylinder is probably bad. replace it.

If you have a coil pack, they run around 60 dollars and are easy to replace. I recommend replacing the sparkplug wires also when replacing the coil pack I have had a bad coil pack fry my wires. Go with motorcraft spark plugs also. The engine was designed for them and some of the other plugs run too hot

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area. A flashing light is usually an indication of a misfire.
