What mass of nitrogen monoxide can be made by the reaction of 8.00 g ammonia and 17.0 g oxygen?
correct answer is 12.8 ± 0.1 (g)
I keep getting 14.1 g
and that the limiting reagent is NH3
What am I doing wrong?

I suspect you didn't write and balance the equation. I worked it and obtained 12.8g and O2 is the limiting reagent.
4NH3 + 5O2 ==> 4NO + 6H2O

yep that was defiantly the problem.
