KA s13 ka24e bucking

Hello all,

I just received my car from a mechanic who put a rebuilt ka24e in my 90 s13 hatch yesterday, and I'm experiencing some problems.

The car was originally smooth up until about ~2500 RPM and then the tachometer would freak a little bit and the car bucks around, refusing to rev any higher.

Today, after not being able to start it (engine wouldn't fire) despite trying a couple of times, I came back to it an hour later and it is having this problem at lower RPMs.

I am no car expert and I would just like my car to run right for once. I'm linking a video to the problem while the car is sitting in neutral and if anybody could give any input on it they would be greatly appreciated.
