agreed, degrease everything from the timing cover area down to the oil pan. drive 50 miles and then inspect. was it leaking before u changed the tensioner? isn't there a gasket around it. did u install a new one?
the timing cover is notorious for leaking especially around the engine mount bolt that goes threw it. mine leaked for yrs and it was the rare repair I didn't want to tackle. paid a reputable shop to and within a yr it was leaking again around that bolt. took it back and they redid that bolt. note to self, I need to check if it's still sealing.
