300 Tdi timing slip

I had my timing belt done by a local shop and driving it away I made it about 10 miles and the Rover died. It is a 300 Tdi engine. The shop said that the bolts were all tight for the injection timing but that the injection pump slipped and threw the timing off. The new belt was fine. If the bolts were still tight it doesn't make sense to me that the timing could be off.

Trying to make sure that something gets corrected and not just put back together and hope it works. Anyone heard of such a thing with a 300Tdi?

thanks
Craig

I highly doubt their explanation but if it's running fine then they fixed the problem. Something must have been left loose and they fixed it with the new belt installation.

Is strange, maybe they loosened the pump nut? Or they lied and forgot to torque the lock plate bolts

I don't have the Rover back yet. I told them I would prefer it if the bolts were just left loose because at least then we would have a reason why it died and something to actually make right so it wouldn't happen again. So from what I am hearing there really isn't a way for the the injection timing to be off if the bolts have been torqued properly?

On just a simple belt change there's no reason to mess with the IP pulley bolts. Sounds like they maybe forgot to torque the belt tensioner properly and it backed off.

??? You need to loosen and retighten the bolts to set the timing when changing the belt.

Common mistake made by non land rover guys.
There is no reason to loosen the main nut on the pump shaft and they probably didnt.
There are three bolts (10mm head)on the pully to fine adjust the timing. They could have been left loose. But then in 9 out of 10 cases the engine would still be running. Just. No power and lots of smoke.
The most common mistake is that people dont follow this essential procedure.
After having fitted the belt and checked the timing the engine has to be turned at least two full revolutions.
Tensioner has to be slackened off and retensioned.
This procedure has to be done twice before reassembling.
