1987 Cadillac Brougham V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 118,000 miles. The engine drags after installing new timing chain. I took the chain back off and motors spins freely. Now the chain is back on and it drags like timing is off but no matter which way I turn distributor it stays the same. What have I done wrong or is there something else wrong? I never removed distributor.

Do you
have the same problem?

To change timing you have to put it in limp mode, timing is set in computer so it stays, may have the distributor off a tooth check that also, put a jumper wire in the diagnostic terminal to get check engine light on ( limp mode).
