Without any context, your problem could be anywhere from spark plugs to your engine has suddenly decided to run away and now there is just a gaping hole.

my dude, you have an evo and you don't know about engine codes? Go to an autozone or some auto place and ask them to check the check engine lights, they'll do it for free, then report back to us.

Sounds like a sensor or something came loose, got reinstalled wrong, or got damaged during the t-belt change but like everyone else is saying you need to read the "check engine" light codes with an OBDII scanner tool.

Go to any car parts shop, tell them you have an engine lights on, most shops will scan it for you for free. They will tell you the code. Google the code, I believe you will get some information you want.
