Who did the work of replacing the belt?

I replaced the timing belt,because of a leaking water pump and the timing is right on,adjusted it three times to resolve the rough idle than no start issue because I've been told multiple times the timing has to be off,it starts up good,than after driving it around the engine gets really rough and I after shut off,only starts up again with given it almost open throttle.

Could it be the map sensor.
