yes if the timing out it will do that as the inlet/exaust valves can open to early/late etc which fooks up the combustion cycle.

Need a light gun to test that! Also if its 1 tooth out it can run poor.

check if your car has a charcoal canister with solenoid valve, the porblem may lie there, as it is a small reserve of fuel the engine will use with a combination of throttle depress and temperature.

If there is a break/restriction in this system, the engine will momentarily be starved of fuel until the ECU detects it and rectifies.

Got the haynes manual for your car? that will let you know where the canister is.. its under the section 'emissions' or similar
