Suggested Solution

Check your brake lights re. coil lamp coming on . Often when the brake light switch fails or bulb out it flashes for some reason .Dependant on mileage and with engine noise , could be general wear on engine and compressions low .A lot of those cars are ex taxis or hire cars with enough miles to take you to the moon and back .
