When I am in gear driving everything is fine but when I let off the gas while keeping in gear it bucks what's the cause? The gears are 2.73

Oh really? Ok maybe my problem is that my car is untuned, like my dad and I put the engine in and I haven't tuned it yet

idk if that is what the prob is... I havent found an answer for my Bucking. Mine does it even while trying to drive normal. Unless I am accelerating it bucks...

It bucks no matter what speed you are going? Like cruising at 35mph in 3rd and it still bucks? I have heard of the TFI module on the distributor causing that kind of problem, it starts to lose spark and the engine wants to stall. How does it idle?

Does your idle surge? Not doubting the tfi, I went through that possibility too. I found several vac leaks when mine was doin that.

My idle only surges when it's cold but my idle could be because air/fuel isn't tuned and neither is my timing

I hear that. Mine was bone stock and I had just gotten it. Still might be a good and cheap place to start though. I had to delete my smog and a/c because of it. I live in a non emission county though.

I think mine bucks because its a Mustang... Stupid joke i know... lol. anywho my idol is fine and it seems to buck because it just wants to go. idk what my issue is, but hope you figure yours out. I dont think mine is a bad thing... i think it may be a combo of all the mods i have... then again, im no machanic...

Personal experience here, mine did the same thing. Changed the TFI module on the distributor and hasnt done it since. Can get an aftermarket module pretty cheap. $30-$35
