Chugging/Stalling when shifting or accelerating after coast

So I finally got the car to keep its charge (battery doesn't die) by adjusting the alternator timing belt and replacing battery.

Before I did that it would chug or die or not accelerate after stopping or slowing down to turn.

After I fixed it everything works fine, but after about 5-10 minutes of driving the car will buck or stall before accelerating when I coast or come around a corner (clutch brake down shift accelerate/stall until it starts moving turn speed up shift)

I am hoping it may be my spark plugs, I checked them today and the threads are
a bit rusty maybe more than a bit.

Anyone have any suggestions? And along with suggestion a how to would be very appreciated. Thank you. And sorry if this has been posted before. I never have good luck with Forum searching.

Well, that can be a clutch related problem or perhaps an ignition timing problem...or could be both...

2 of the spark plug wires came unplugged from the metal harness that bites the plug when I was trying to pull them out to check them. After I fixed those cleaned the grease off the plug and then filled up the tank it has ran fine. I am hoping it is not just some fluke that it ran perfectly for 30+ miles today.

Otherwise I have Wednesday set for it to get checked out by a "pro"
