is the leak between the oil pan and the bottom of the engine?

although i don't know any exact prices i can imagine that either a pan gasket or a timing cover gasket would be pricey. sometimes with pan gaskets the sub fram has to be dropped but since you have a 4cyl it might not have to be dropped. and with timing covers pretty much everything on the front of the engine obviously would have to come off: belts.pullies,fan shroud,and maybe even the water pump. i think a couple of the bolts on that water pump are also used to hold the timing cover on, if memory serves correctly. and the valve cover might have to come off too.
