I recently rebuilt my engine like 5000 miles ago. I have started to have problems with the engine...It seems to be loosing power...it studders when you first accelerate...then from 45 to 55 mph it jerks around...giving the engine a generous rev, it backfires out of my intake. I was just wondering if anyone knows what this is. Someone told me that it may be a piston ring because even though i rebuilt the engine, i only changed one piston, the main bearings, the crank and the piston rings.
please help.

the check engine light hasn't gone on...and there aren't any codes...im going to do a compression test tomorrow and see if maybe it could be my piston rings...someone told me that they could have not settled in right when i did the rebuild. But you think it may be timing? cam or chain because i never replaced the chain.
