comment Knocking in my engine during cold start / whistling when accelerating
Interesting. I'll keep that in mind for future diagnostics. But I think we can both agree that a single plug wire being loose at idle, shouldn't cause a flashing CEL/MIL. It could conceivably cause it to pop a steady CEL/MIL, especially if the injection system uses the plugs for ion sensing duties, but I don't believe that's the case here.

Brian Knoblauch is correct, a loose wire can be knocked loose easily, though 1 loose wire shouldn't cause a flashing Check Engine (CE) light. Check for 2 or 3. :)

comment Is it possible for a car to start and run with a dead/dying fuel pump? If so then for how long?
Luckily, even with modern fuel injected engines, a failing fuel pump and relay behave similarly to older, non-fuel injected cars (for the most part). Glad you got it resolved!
