Question about 1990 Toyota Celica
Replaced water pump and timing belt, aligned crankshaft pulley with the 0 on the cover, and aligned the camshaft hole with the notch on the bearing cap. Would start last night but would sort of backfire at the engine when you gave it gas. After it sort of warmed up it drove fine, no backfire or anything. Went to start it today and it takes a really long time to turn over. It will crank but took awhile to start.
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.

Remove any oil or water on the idler pulley and keep it clean.
If the old timing belt is being reinstalled, make sure the directional arrow is facing in the original direction and that the belt and crankshaft gear matchmarks are properly aligned.
On 2S-ELC engines, make sure that the Matchmark on the oil seal retainer and center hole of the small hole on the camshaft timing pulley are aligned.
