Unhappy bonneville blues

I jus purchased a 1996 pontiac bonneville and it has been giving me the blues... but today my check engine light popped on and began to flash off and on. I went to auto zone to get a reading and it said i needed a TPS sensor which i already replaced as well as spark plugs. what could be causing all these problems plz help!!!!

A flashing SES light is a misfire, P0300 threw P0306. This can be caused by a bad spark plug, bad plug wire, bad coil, or bad ICM. Need that code and we can help narrow it down.

P0122 is TPS low voltage https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.p...68#post1390952

A bad TPS can cause odd problems.
