All Honda engines are interference except 3.0L & 3.2 which are considered Non-interference engines.The engine valve(s) should not hit the pistons if the belt breaks.

do a timing belt and I should be good to go?

Yes, its not considered an interference engine so providing there is no other issue replacing the belt should do it.

I put a new belt and water pump on this and it started and idled fine, it drives good too, except when I come to a stop and take off, it wants to buck and jerk when it tries shifting. also after shutting it off and go to restart after the engine is hot, it doesn't start good, it acts as if its out of time, it backfires and then it starts to idle fine, each time it acts like this it is setting a code P0336, what do I need to do?

This code usually set if your cam timing is off. That would also explain the way it running as well.

what bout a bad crankshaft sensor, the old belt had shreaded and wrapped itself around the crank gear and I think the sensor is down in that area

That is a possibility as well if you're sure the timing is properly aligned. The CKP dose mount at the bottom of the engine under the timing cover as well. So you can have a look at it and check belt alignment at the same time.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
