TIMING BELT MISFIRING

2003 Dodge SX

Engine Performance problem
2003 Dodge SX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 125858 miles

I just has my timimg belt replaced yesterday. The car started after the job was done. The next time I started it, the engine sensor light came on but ran okay, I think. The next time it stared as well. BUT the next time I could turn it over so it sounded like It was going to start but wouldn't. I sent the same mechanic to check it out( I had to leave my car in a parking lot that night) and it started for him. I went to pick it up and it stared but the next time and the next, it took 6-8 times of letting it try and try and try to start( about 10-15 seconds of trying each time), it finally started. The mechanic says it could be the ignition modulator. Could it be that he didn't line up the teeth right so it takes a while to line up correctly? I had a very reliable car, and now I have anxiety everytime I get in my car ! Help! Thank you in advance. I wish I could pay something but I am getting gov't help right now and can't afford it. : (
