Default P0306 with flashing engine light

I know its a cylinder 6 misfire but what is the flashing light about? Where should I start looking?

Also is anyone else having problems with the iPhone app?

Could this be a plug or coil?

Either or Both.. Might as well do plugs if they have over 50k on them.

I should add this is a 97 4.6 so it has packs not COP.

Plugs are fairly new. Under 15k on them or so.

Could be failed coil or bad plug wires.

Pulled the plug and it had a autolite in it. It was slightly wet and smelled like unburnt gas. Going to replace it with a motor craft and see what happens.

I think I have a extra set at the house so I'm gonna swap it while it's there. Last time I had a misfire with flashing engine light it was a valve down on #4.
