You have to unplug the distributor advance wire, it's a tan or brown colored wire, set to 0 (or up to about 8 advance) then reconnect the wire.

How to Set timing on nissan sentra 1600cc 1989 model
The timing should be set to Top Dead Center (TDC), but you must disconnect the electronic spark advance feature. Unfortunately, I don't know how to disconnect the spark advance. The timing chain is all that can be set. There is no way to set the timing as the distributor is not adjustable.
set it at top dead center the computer does the rest
I'd just set it by ear and how easy it starts once it's set.
Check your timing and if it is a carb, check to make sure the air fuel mixture is set properly.

Sounds like your timing chain might have jumped a notch. Timing is set by rotating the distributor. There is a nut underneath the distributor that locks it down. Timing mark is on the harmonic balancer, sorry I don't have the setting handy. I would start by checking the timing with a timing light. VBdenny

307 Chevrolet was phased out in 1973. There was 307 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, but that motor was not offered in the Caprice. You have a 305 if it's a gas-burning V8. The only other engines offered for that year were the base V6 and the diesel-burning 350. this above answer is wrong. the caprice did indeed use a 307 in the 80s.
Unplug and reconect the coolant temp sensor.
