Again, thanks for all the help for those who responded to my original post on this head gasket issue. To answer some of the questions the leak is from the forward part of the engine and my independent, initially, thought it might be from the timing chain cover. Further inspection indicated the head gasket. The engine is not burning oil - the tail pipe has no residue nor smoke. Coolant might be off it's normal level, but, not enough to say it's leaking just yet. Engine power is normal. So, the only indication of head gasket leak is oil streaming from the gasket area at the front part of the block. Engine has no tapping noises and idles very smoothly and quietly. Hope this helps a little.
