Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the
compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the
camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam
belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal
of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning
the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt
cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that
the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer
on the inner belt cover.
The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.

if it ran fine before belt change, you maybe off a tooth,I've been off a tooth with same engine had same symptoms along with erratic acceleration and poor gas mileage. Took off top cover, lined up no.1 tdc. and I was off 1 tooth at camshaft hole. was able to adjust without dismanteling everything. Loosen idler and you can get enough play to turn cam one cog. hope this helps.
