It sounds like whoever did your repair wasn't thorough. When installing a new chain, the timing needs to be set according to spec. I suspect it's off and since you have a oil leak, definitely a bad repair job. Take it back to the person who did to rectify and fix the problem. Any reputable shop will stand by their work.
