S.O.S From Costa Rica

I have an 89 Bronco II 2.9.
The problem is that every time I put it on first gear to start moving, there is a "counter explosion" that comes out from the air filter box. My car losses power and starts to jerk. It stops and starts to run smooth as I step on the gas and switch gears, (it also happens when I switch between gears from time to time)
I also have tried to fine tune it as best as I can, but no matter how hard I try I just can't seem to leave it out right.
Please help

Warm up engine,
turn eng off
disconnect Spout connector
adjust timing to 10 deg. before top dead center
turn eng off
re-connect Spout connector,


then CHECK FOR CODES
