Timing problem we think?

Mark the timing belt as well with the marks on the crank and cam.
to make sure it is not slipping and staying in place during the install.
I hope your valves are not bent. If they are not and you checked the above and still the same, then and only then I would put the belt back the way it was with that tooth off.

Timing belt jump

Remove the t belt and reinstall it. Sounds like you were a half a tooth of on the cams wich would put you a tooth off on the crank. A lack of power makes sense with bad cam timing a s could,very well throw a miss. The misfire did not cause timing to jump

I just put a timing belt on my Izuzu Rodeo and it wont start( seems to try but has no power. If i was one notch off on my belt do I have to realign the belt or is there an adjustment like we use to do with...

There is no adjustment. The belt is probably off by more than one tooth as it would likely start if it was just a tooth. Either way, the belt must be on perfectly for the engine to run well. Sometimes it is difficult to align the marks at the outside of the sprocket with the mark at the back cover. If you lay a tooth pick across the cam sprocket so that it follows the tooth under the belt to the back cover, it makes it easier.

How to install timing belt

One way to do it, is to make a mark on the tooth wheels the timing belts is running over, and a correspondig mark on somewhere on the engine.
Another way is to turn the tooth wheels around, until the factory made position marks on the tooth wheels correspond with the factory made position marks on the engine (normally upper part).
What is important is that the tooth wheels are in exactly same postion when you put on the new timing belt, as when you removed the old timing belt.
It's also recommended to replace the unit used for tightening the timing belt at the same time.
This is only a short description of the most important things. For a more detailed describtion, one can get a repair manual from Haynes:

Timing out by half a tooth

if you use marks on the belt,try to revers or rotate t/belt untill marks lined up correctly with marks on sprockets.Use something like big binder clips to hold belt on camshaft sprockets(line them up first) , then go for crank.
