Timing Belt - Collateral Damages

Hi everyone - new guy from sunny San Diego, California.

I need some expert opinion about the collateral effects when timing belt breaks. Last week my 2001Ranger stopped running, towed to my neighborhood shop. To make the story short, the timing belt was found broken, replaced it, the water pump, and the fan belt as well. The engine is now running very rough (idle) and appeared misfiring, idle is too high. I am bringing it back to the shop this week. What do you think is the problem?

Appreciate any expert opinion.

The timing chain broke?
It could have jumped a few teeth. Get a timing light and check the timing on it.

Thanks - your reply makes sense but where do you make your timing adjustment?

You need to take it back apart.
You need to bring number one cylinder to top dead center.
There will be a mark on the cam shaft sprocket, and a mark on the timing chain cover. they HAVE to line up.

You need to be on the compression side of the stroke also, which may involve pulling either plug on number one cylinder and finding the highest point.
