Rough acceleration

522 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Ryumusha
I have about 117000km and I had the timing belt changed 100000km and ever since I've had it changed the car does not accelerate as smooth as it used to and I experience a loss of power in every gear. The car feels like it shudders while I accelerate. Have you guys experienced this? My MAF has gone bad, but before this problem could it be affecting it? Heeeeeelllllpppppp!!!!!!!!

Re: Rough acceleration (delasole)

Sounds like whoever changed the belt didn't line up the timing marks very well.
yeah my car does it too. but only when im accelerating from 0 to 10 mph. stutters like jimmy from southpark.
besides the timing belt what might cause this?
oxy sensor?
fuel filter?
