I have to say I think that's your cam sensor. And yes, you can do it yourself, and yes, a bad cam sensor will cause your car to buck. It can also mess with your tach, but not always.

It's about a 5 minute job to replace. The cam sensor is located right underneath the SC snout. You unplug the wire harness, remove the two bolts (5.5mm I think?) and lift it off. Be careful not to drop those bolts!!! Really easy to lose!!! Put the new one on, screw it down and plug in.
