the oil leak is not from the head gasket it is from the valve cover gasket and you can replace that yourself very easily.. it is just a cover so no mechanical knowledge is really required. a gasket set should be around 25-50$ depending on where you buy it. the TPS ( throttle sensor ) is on the throttle body ( where the cable connects too ) and should cost no more than 50$ and again can be replaced yourself in 10 minutes..
