Default engine wierdness after timing belt, front crank seal, valve cover gasket

so i changed timing belt, water pump, front crank seal and valve cover gasket. the car runs fine but the idle seems a bit fucked up, rpms get jittery sometimes going from 1k to 1300-1500. also, when i turn on my a/c and im at a stop, i get small squeeking noise and the power steering feels like it goes out. could it be my accesory belts are too tight? im plannign on changing the belts but not sure if that would fix the issue.

Check to make sure your crank pulley is actually attached.
