New Engine Trouble - blinking engine light

02 ES. 170K

Car was driving perfectly last night but with a long standing 0442 code. This morning saw a rough start and an engine the felt like a cylinder was out. Chugging a little but not right at all.

Drove down the road hoping it would sort itself out and then it chugged harder, gave a blinking engine light. Went home, shut it down and got a 0440 code. 0440 code only.

Disconnected the battery and am now about to start it up. Anyone see this?

you have a miss fire ,, flashing engine light ,,, gonna have to run it long enough to make it pop out a code, the reason it flashes , is to alert you , when its missing its dumping raw fuel into the cats,, check plugs, coils etc

Holy s#$%,

I can actually see the spark firing in the plug area. (never seen anything like it)

I can hear it and I can see it spark breaching at the top.
