I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think you should start with  Oracle SQL Profiler. Find the queries which are taking longer time.  Read the plan and fix the issues. if you are only looking for tool then you can use Foglight for Oracle. URL for the same is - Trial is free, you can download and check.

Our external oracle tuning dba, he sees all, finds all and explains all performance problems

Tuning is a black art.
The cause of the performance problem can be different every time.
You can't just let a tool on it to fix and solve everything.

Oracle has been trying this as automated process for decades.
Have you ever seen an autocreated index because of a performance problem ?
Some of the best tools come with the database


awr/ash - these do require additional licensing though

For a free, 3rd party tool
sqld360 is nice to gather lots of data about a sql statement and db status
