Make sure you didn't cross any of the spark plug wires when you changed the distributor

the pulse ring is held in with plastic. At about 100,00 miles it starts moving around due to the plastic melting. Replacing your Distributer is the only fix I know. Check out U tube for video of this if your unsure.
