Yes,that sound,s like it may be your problem.Belt jumping,just hope you don,t have head damage,it will cost a lot more than just the belt replacement,and all so if i were you ,i would have mechanic put the hole timing belt kit in it,with new water pump,and have him check compression before he doe,s his work,this will determine if you have head damage.

Thanks . I just found out thru the dealer the Z3s all have timing chains
