Sounds like the mechanic that put your timing belt on didn't put it on correctly and the "timing" of the spark is off causing the blinking CEL (misfires)

The fix is to do the job again, but have someone that knows what they're doing do it.

If it was mine, I would not drive the car to the shop, I'd have it towed. Why risk damage to the engine if you don't have to?

That is good news. I always try to get gas at the same station if possible.
Was the light 'off' immediately or did it take some driving before it shut off?
I got a CEL and mis-fire on #3 code a while back on mine. Changed the plugs and left the code showing but haven't driven it far, so I think the code will still be there.

i drove 118 miles with new spark plugs and coil packs , i was down on empty and refilled , when i turned the car back on the light dissappeared and then she started running smooth again,

my plugs had a bit of oil on them i believe , i never changed them at 146k miles (im a moron i know this already)

I have the same car, 135k miles, had the misfire code P0303, the#3 plug was fouled. If it were me I'd do what your tech said and change them all and coil packs.
