I replaced the timing belt on my passat 1.8t and made sure to mark the camshaft pulleys, but now the car has trouble starting and starts only if I press the gas pedal, it also delays on acceleration before the engine picks up, can I just take the belt off and try to realign the marks I made or is there a different way to deal with this because the camshaft has four different rotational cycles? Or is the even why the car is having trouble starting? Also I can sometimes hear a small backfire when trying to start the engine
