2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Question: engine lacks power, idles rough

 

Question

My Cavalier just had timing belt replaced, along with timing belt tensioner, and water pump. I was leaving work, then car started idling rough and lacked power, I barely got it home. The only other problem was an 02 sensor before catalytic convertor, which has since been replaced. Now the serpentine belt tensioner pulley makes a lot of racket. Could this be the problem? Check engine light has not come on as of yet.

    It's very difficult to know what the issue is, but I would take it directly back to the shop that performed the timing belt replacement.
