my 95 deville started sputtering real bad so i pulled the codes and gota cde for the ignition coil. well i changed the distributor,wires,rotor, spark plugs, and distributor cap, then after driving about half a mile it sputtered lightly. seems like when it warms up thats when it sputters. it shows no codes passed inspection with flying colors. i bought the distributor from autozone. do it sound like its a bad part. can a weak fuel pump cause these problems once the car warms?

A weak pump would cause a problem at high fuel demands like WOT.

Anything from Autozone is suspect. Their parts are cheap for a reason.

It doesn't matter where you bought the distributor...they all sell the same Cardone brand that any other parts distributor would sell you, including the famed rockauto.

When you replaced the distributor, did you follow correct procedure to set the base timing?

Has your fuel filter ever been replaced? My '95 Deville with the 4.9 liter had a slight sputtering a year ago----i had everything you had replaced also---but i also had the fuel filter replaced.After all the new parts were installed---no more sputtering.I got most of my parts from autozone too.I`ve never had a problem with their parts yet.
