I just replaced my timing belt at my school autoshop and on the drive home it overheated and the car is hesitating more than usual. Any help?

Taking a wild guess here but I'd say it wasn't installed correctly.

Is the check engine light on?
Did you do the water pump as well?
If not did you check the bearing of the water pump to make sure it rotates smoothly?

Another question what belt did you use and was the writing on the belt facing outwards?
Did you check the timing marks of the new belt before rotating the crank by hand 720 degrees?

Timing belt change usually involves a water pump change right? So the high school shop students had to drain the coolant?

Did you refill the coolant and burp out any air?

The water pump had already been replaced a year or two before so I didnít bother doing it. And there are no check engine lights on. We put the timing marks in time and the lettering for the belt is outward.

Waterpump bearing felt fine.

+1 for a skipped tooth .

That's what happened on my 97' Accord .
Felt like the cat converter was stopped up.
Hesitated to rev over 5k rpms.

How does just skipping a tooth cause it to overheat? If the water pump was operating properly prior to the timing belt change and the engine is now overheating, then the belt was not installed properly (routed correctly). I don't see how you overheat from the timing being off by one tooth.

Does that engine have balance shafts and a second belt?

This, maybe air in the system. Honda can be very picky with air. Burp the system, check if both upper and lower hoses are getting warm/coolant level is good and t-stat is operating properly?

Well he indicated the pump was not replaced and didn't say they drained the coolant, so I assumed that wasn't the issue.

Did you install the belt or you were there for the whole install process? No students able to mess the install while you stepped away for a bit? Maybe the belt was threaded on incorrectly around the water pump?
