Blinking check engine light not good. Damage could be caused to cat convertor if you continue driving it. Check all wire harnesses in the area that the work was done. Look for loose, unhooked wire harnesses or possibly burnt wires(on exhaust manifold)

First I would double check all wire harnesses in the immediate area of where the hose was leaking and replaced. Check for potential water in connectors and loose/unhooked connectors.

If in USA go to auto zone and borrow (deposit required) one of their code readers. Read the codes this will help guide you in the right direction.

also seen on your other posted question about the distributor. Did it get sprayed with water? If so remove the cap and dry cap (inside and out) and rotor off real good. If it got water inside it that's probably your issue. Drying it out should get you back going.

Water inside cap will cause p0300,p0301, ect. Codes. Miss fire codes.
