Flashing SES light when idling cold

My SES light is flashing when it's idling, not when i'm driving and not once the engine warms up. I've replaced the wires and plugs and air filter and oil and fuel filter and other stuff. I have a 3.8 v6 in it. Any suggestions? The code is a p0306 cylinder 6 misfire. I just put fuel injector cleaner into it, should i just drive through this tank of gas and see if that fixes it? or with the flashing problem should i just park it?

Did you do what Injuneer suggested in the other post? Swapping #6 injector with another one and seeing if the miss follows?
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural born stupidity.

I don't get it. Your first post begged for help. I provided what I feel is a comprehensive and accurate answer. Do you disagree with my recommendations?
