I believe that whens it's flashing it means "get yo ass to the shop asap!"

I'd definitely get it looked at.

OK so on my lunch break i went to advance auto parts and had them hook up the code scanner. I got a p0300 which lucky me means multiple misfiers YAY!!! i just changed teh plugs and wires cuz i coded a cylinder 4 misfire a couple weeks ago. I know for a fact that i have an exhaust leak but would that cuz a misfire and throw a code? its not a specific code cuz it said pending on the scanner. can anyone shed soem light on my situation?

Flashing usually means a problem but no "hard" code, which is usually a misfire or an o2 sensor going out. Glad it was easy!
