Sounds like the timing belt is going bad and the motor is out of time slightly. this motor is a dual overhead cam design and it is pretty tricky to change this unless you are a good mechanic.

have they check the timing on it. sometimes when timing is off by a few degrees it would cause both rough idle and backfiring. also check for a dead cylinder.
