Question 1990 Camry - No power esp up-hill

I have a 1990 Camry, standard shift. I had the timing belt replaced. Ever since the car has not had the power it once had. It will accelerate from 0 to 30 in about 10 seconds (seriously), and struggles going from gear to gear, with almost the same accelation rate even at higher speeds. I will also lose speed while going up a hill, all the while the pedal is floored.

I have also noticed that the clutch pedal sparitacially sticks, but will pop back out on its own.

About 2 years before I repalced the clutch, and had no problems up until immediately after the timing belt was replaced.

Any clue as to what is going on here?

Thanks to any who can help.

Just speculating here. I suppose its possible to misalign the marks by a cog and be retarded by 10 degrees or so. The Camry's are such great cars, that it just might be so. Can you elaborate on the accurarcy of the repair?

Agree about timing not set correct. You answered your own question

You need a new clutch master, check valve sticking.

Thanks to Lugnut & Larry both!

In so far as the accuracy of the repair, I don't know -- but I'm beginning to speculate 'not that good.' I've learned through this it is better to just wait and do it myself than let a "friend" do it for me that has only been recommended.

Do you think the error was made inside the block itself, or can it be corrected externally? Forgive my ignorance -- I can do a few things with engines, but this is leaving my rhelm of experience.

How long will a clutch master typically last?

Thanks!

It's under the cover, the marks are not lined up properly. They may have been set correctly but not rechecked after you rotate the engine to make sure every thing is still lined up and tight.

The clutch master will usually last a while.

Any Damage?

Do you think any damage has occured to the engine since it has been out of time for a while?
