Personally, I would take a trip to the dealership. If your car is (seemingly?) randomly popping up with a check engine light and you notice a loss of power, followed by normal driving, something is up and should be checked out.
Lol that was me not the OP, and it was a double post failure I'm assuming on the part of my ISP, not TN.

Ugh. I'm off today I think, I've had a lot of retarded moments today. I wish you hadn't quoted me, lol.

Sorry for the confusion. Must be the heat. It's 96 here, but it feels like 109 with the heat index. Must be getting to my head.

Don't think it's your ISP. I'm also having very long delay on mine when I click submit. I'm on cable.

^Don't worry, it's an issue that's being discussed with the much higher-ups to see if we can fix it. We're all having a problem.

Sorry for the thread jack, OP!

Flashing MIL is a misfire. Get the code so you know where to start looking (it will tell you which cylinder).

a check engine light flashing means the engine is misfiring right then as you are driving. Its probably going to show up as P0300, random multiple cylinder misfire. There are lots of possible causes it will need a little bit of investigation work to figure it out.

Did you get the answer? I have the same problem. I changed the plugs, ignition coils. o2 sensors. Air flow sensor. air filter. Still have the same problem on petrol and LPG.

If your CEL is on you need to see what codes the car is throwing before just replacing parts that may not have anything to do with the problem.

found it. It's the valves that are burned in the head due to the lpg usage. Found this by measuring the compression. Also the o2 sensor was faulty so that needed replacing as well.
