A flashing check engine light is warning you that the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. Sounds like it's misfiring under load. This is an ignition system problem. Check your ignition coil since a tune up didn't seem to solve the problem. Did you replace the distributor rotor? You didn't mention that. If not, replace the distributor rotor and check that ignition coil sounds like it's failing. HTH. -Jim
Could be leaning out under load, have the codes pulled and see what they say, as you had a flashing light it should have stored it in memory.
I already replace the distributor cap
