Default Massive oil leak

I am having trouble finding good images of my engine. I am sure you all can help. I have an 04 L series with a 2.2l. Behind the intake manifold, above the oil pan, and below the head gasket there is a massive leak, added 1 qt 1/2 qt came out just cranking. If you know of anything in this area that could cause a massive leak please let me know. I don't want to pull the intake if it is something I can do without that. There is another seam in between the head and oil pan, it appears to be coming from above that on a lip area. again any advice would be appreciated. Crosses fingers in the hopes its not a major repair.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

OUCH pulled the intake, really easy, and found a large crack in the block. Lesson learned never buy a vehicle without cranking it, no matter how cheap! Any advice from here? car is not in great shape I would guess its time to scrap it.

Time to visit the parts recycling house and get another engine so you will have a not cracked block to rebuild, who knows you might even get a really good engine. If your block is cracked I would not trust it, leaking outside there could be an inside leak somewhere.
