2002 4 cyl - I fixed a squelch (Tensioner) and replaced water pump. Immediately after Solara won't idle and leaking a lot of oil (appears around head gasket but not certain). Oddly the car runs great, no acceleration hesitation at all. If head gasket or worse, warped head it wouldn't run so good. If no one has a better idea, I am still planning to replace the head gasket. It's not transmission oil.

Can anyone lend experience or suggestions?

Thanks!

Been answering my own posts here. From the just replaced water pump, a slight blown head gasket is why the car still runs fine but leaking oil. Also, the idle issue is from a $400.+ (part only, dealer cost) throttle switch/sensor. Seeking after market or salvage part.
