you're going to have to get your car scanned to see what codes are coming up. Most auto parts stores will scan it for free.

that would explain the flashing CEL. You're right on track, inspect the wire real good for cracks.

You may need to go to a dealer or specialty garage and have them scan the abs computer, not all codes are displayed via CEL.

Might be dumb but did you check the distributor cap? Maybe your spark plugs were good, just your distributor cap not giving voltage (assuming the wire is good).

The 2.4 is coil on plug. No distributor.
You can try swapping coils around to see if the misfire follows it, moving parts and clearing that code to see where it pops up next.

I've seen tc problems come up as MAF sensor issues.
Try cleaning the MAF and the throttle body for good measure
