At 70K I would say no to timing. If the light is on and blinking, I am guessing you have a cylender misfire. To confirm that, take the vehicle to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer. Most will do it for free. Once they get the code, it will identify what is causing the problem. You may have a bad coil, bad ignition wire, or may just need a basic tune up.
