I am replacing my timing belt and water pump. I made sure that the camshaft and crankshaft marks lined up before I took off my belt. Then when I was taking off the camshaft sprocket bolt the camshaft moved a little bit. So I just moved it back counterclockwise into place again. I also had the crankshaft sprocket move on me a little so also moved it back to the mark. Is my timing going to be off? The camshaft and crankshaft marks are still aligned but I kepted move them back into place every time they moved. Help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Hi
Some movement will occur a tooth or two just move back and make sure all lined up before tenisoner is released. When you put belt on get all slack out of right side get it as tight as you can. Then tensioner will tighten up the rest. Roll engine over verefy marks line up. Two complete revolutions
Let me know if you need any think else
