Default Plugs and wires

I just installed new plugs NGk tr-55 gapped at .060 and while i was removing stock wires they broke...... so i bought some bosch ones for mautzone because i had little money and needed my car installed it all. Now day 3 i get a check engine light which comes on at random and when i shut the car off and back on it goes away? What causes this a misfire or loose plug wire?

Lux - to really help you, you'd need to get the car scanned. Also, do you feel any misfires or rough idling that is not normal?

Mine began popping on the light after I changed an exhaust manifold. Went to my local Advance Auto for a free scan and they said it was an EGR flow code. Why does the car push a code after being worked on could be as simple as rubbing against a connector gently. I installed a new gasket on my EGR to no avail. The fix seemed to be taking the connector on and off about 5 times.

Please get the code to pop up and have the car scanned.

Does the car misfire?
Definitely check your connections at both the plug and the coil end.
Also, head to one of your local parts stores and ask if they do the free code scanning.
