Re: wierd idle!!
are you getting any codes? I would try the master reset...remove the negative battery terminal cable and step on the brakes 5-10 times, leave it off for 5 mins and then put it back on the battery...if that doesn't work go to an autozone and have then check to see if there are any codes

Pull the codes first...The reset will delete the codes.

A flashing engine light could be a misfire or could be very serious.

Re: wierd idle!!
Always codes first as indicated ^^^ Erratic, almost stalling idle is also one of the symptoms of an EGR Valve heading south. Along with it you will usually get low speed (~30-50 mph) surging, and poor economy and performance.
