Sounds like you have too much Crankcase pressure. Check to see if your PCV valve is functioning.

the serpentine belt should have its own tension-er that's already there and how you get it off with a 1/2 or 3/4 ratchet

REMOVE THE BRACKETS THAT ARE IN THE WAY.. I KNOW LOTS OF FUN. BUT THATS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IF THE BOLTS CAN'T BE REACHED WITH SWIVEL SOCKETS AND EXTENSIONS

Looks like a head gasket failure. Oil is escaping out of the engine and within the engine into the coolant passageways. The oil pressure system is run at higher pressure than the coolant pressure and fortunately this has so far kept the water from entering the oil and crankcase. I have no faith at all in any after-market product that claims it can repair leaks by simply adding it to the coolant or oil and taking a head off is not a trivial task. It may also be that the head has warped (this would also cause the leak) and this in turn will require it to be re-machined. Head gaskets are not expensive but due to the work involved this could be one occasion when a visit to a machine shop is the best option.
