This past weekend, I did some work on my 1993 Cadillac Deville. I changed the passenger strut/shock, changed the lines to my windshield wipers, self-bled my brakes, and most importantly changed the front and rear valve cover gaskets. I am proud to say that it was a success and there are no leaks (even though my brakes still feel weak), but all of a sudden a new problem arose. Now my car will barely move when I put it into 'DRIVE.' I have to put it into second or third gear in order to get it moving. So my questions is, what is the problem, what line or screw do I have to tighten in order to get my car moving normal again? It moves perfect in reverse, but soon as I put it in drive, its like an elderly person having to take a first step. I did do alot of climbing on the engine when having to change the rear valve cover gasket. I also will like to note that I do hear a slight whistling sound coming from on top of the engine.
