Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay. After the timing belt was replaced when the poor running occurred did you try to do a cylinder compression test at all to see if there is low compression on one or more cylinders possibly causing this issue here? Let me know so we can continue from here. Thanks Pete

O.k.,unfortunately after looking into the info I have on this model here I dont have the exact timing diagram myself but someone else here might have this info.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.Thanks Pete
