Vxr astra h opel timing belt issue Sign In

Hi all silly me i did mark the cams or crank when i took the belt off.
I have lined up the factory marks and put the belt back on but the car is idleing rough.

How can i fix this?. Put one cam a one way try it again then put to the other way try again. And do the same with the other cam and crank?
Or is there a easyer quicker way
?
Thanks

We don't have that car here in the US so we don't have any specifics.

Why was the belt changed? Did it break or jump timing while you were driving?

The timing belt was due to be changed along with the water pump.
So i changed it.

If you rotated the engine with the belt off you could have done valve damage. A compression test would determine that but we can't tell much from here. You're going to have to do some testing to pinpoint the issue.
