You have to be very careful when replacing the timing belt, after you allow the tensioner back on the belt you need to recheck the marks to make sure they are still lined up and correct it if it is off. That may have been what happened to yours, or the tensioner is not set right or going bad. Was the tensioner and idlers replaced at the same time as the belt and pump? That should have been also.
