Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just recently change my rotor distributor,

and spark plugs AC Delco only. But still
have engine service light on comes on after
after a little while after starting and then
cuts off then back on again and then stays

high other than a few runs but I do not want
to further make damage while driving her

Recheck your work. You might have crossed the plug wires on the distributor cap, forgot to hook something up or broke a connection. You can also scan the car for the codes to see what the issue is as well.
