I had the same problem after I washed my engine bay but mine went away after 15 minutes worth of driving. It would only do it when I approached 3500 rpms. If it was caused by the water, it should go away after driving it for a while. If not you'll have to figure out which coil or plug it is.
hopefully i wont have to lend him one of my coils im not using.
Why don't you just lend it to him and see if that fixes the problem?
If not you know its not the coil.

A blinking SES light is a misfire code...no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Plugs, wires, or coils. All Autozone will tell you is that it's a misfire code. They won't tell you which cylinder is misfiring. So you could use trial and error. Or if you have a regular mechanic or proformance shop, they usually have a scanner that will hook up to the car while you take it for a spin, and when it spits/sputters (misfires), it will tell you which cylinder is acting up.
Are you sure you didn't knock a plug wire loose while washing it?

I washed mine once and after i washed the engine i somehow got something wet somewhere to make my starter not ever disengage... So needless to say i parked it and let it dry

A blinking SES light is a random misfire. You are supposed to wash your engine bay with the motor running, that way if when you are spraying the water you hear it bog down, you know not to spray there any more. You are also not supposed to use a pressure washer. It's all on Adams polishes website.
