Default A3 2005 BKD hot start problem - different from usual!

Hi, looking for some help with my car. I think I'm posting this in the right section, correct me if I'm wrong. I've done a fairly extensive search and can't find anyone else with the exact problem I have.

Having just had the timing belt replaced (it's done 90k miles) it now doesn't start properly when hot. It will turn over right away and fire up, but die again after a second or two. This seems different to the usual problems of prolonged starting required when hot. When left for 45mins or so it will start up no problem.

I have also noticed that it no longer produces black smoke under acceleration.

I'm assuming the timing could be out causing this but wouldn't mind knowing if anyone has had a similar experience. Also if it is possible to rectify this by just adjusting the injector pump timing? I'm not too clued up on these engines.

Any advice would be appreciated, and Happy New Year!
