There is a gasket in the tensioner that we always had issues with that caused this problem. The repair manuals say you need to remove the tensioner but if you have the tool to compress the tensioner you can comress it, remove the mounting screws and then pull the gasket out with a pic or tweezers. Remember its' position so that when you reinstall in it is correctly placed. Im not sure where you can get the tensioner compressor but all it is, is a long bolt with a plastic shoulder at the end that grabs the edge of the chain tensioner when you tighten the bolt.
