flashing CEL

about 15 miles into the drive on the way home from getting my IMS done- in stop and go traffic, gas light on (oops lol) my CEL started flashing for about 5 seconds maybe, did not notice a difference in the way it was driving, it then went away and never returned on the 55 mile drive home (stopped a couple times too) should I be concerned or just keep an eye out for it to come back?

... the connectors on the coils.
Better yet, read the ECU which will tell you exactly why it was flashing.
But I'll make a WAG that one of the coil connectors is not secure.
that's common especially if they were working on your engine.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
