The tensioner is spring loaded, not oil fed (only gets splashed on). The design was changed mid-'07 to a new design and some perhaps a minor change since. Should have a dot on it, but it may not. Yours should not have failed, but if it did, it likely has a broken spring, whereas the early ones just got weak. Once you have the CCT out, you can unwind/wind it to see if the spring is broken.
You'll know once you pull the valve cover, line up the timing marks and see if the cams moved a tooth or two. Hopefully only one, but if it moved, then the CCT is the next thing to look at. Smart play to trailer it home and not attempt any further starts.
Let's see where you are at that point. You can re-time the cams, and with a good CCT do a proper compression test to see if a valve was bent by making contact with a piston. Sure hope not, kinda sounds like not. At that mileage you could do a head repair, but might find a good engine for similar money.
Keep us posted.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
