Check the timing and scan for the codes, since the check engine light is on. Report back. Also check the conditions of the spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor?

Cap and rotor is over a year old plugs and wires look OK and the check engine lights comes on at high rpm and then goes off after I shift
