Hi cnappi,

Thanks for the donation.

If the problem was not there before the timing belt change, I would suspect it has been installed out of sync.

Use a timing light to check the ignition timing, if it s far off the mark, you need to check the timing belt marks again.

If that is not the problem, I would like to understand more about the symptoms of the bucking. Bucking at various gears and speeds? Any excessive clearance of CV shaft ineer joints?
