Car ran good for awhile and then engine light came on again and the car ran erratically or missing! Can anyone tell me a specific problem i'm having? Also eating a lot of gas, engine light blinks when reach a certain speed and then stops blinking.

Bad Coil... They are very poorly sealed at the top and crack. Luckily it seems to me #5 is the center front (Nearest the Rad).

Change Coil ASAP you could have damaged your catalytic converter due to unburnt fuel.
