Driving Problem

So I just replaced the timing belt, alternator, serpentine belt, and water pump by myself. And the car starts but when I'm driving in 1st and 2nd gear, it hardly drives. The car will jerk and something is wrong. I have no idea what it could be. I washed my engine bay and forgot to cover a few of the sensors that are on the firewall. Idk how to explain the way it drives, but it sucks. Does anyone know what it could be??

You changed the timing belt. My guess its a few degrees off. What your describing sounds like the timing is off.

That isnt a SVT engine but your sig shows SVT so which engine are you working on

need to test the TPS if they get wet they dont like it , but first sense timing belt was changed I would confirm timing first
