Default 2.2L engine question

Just a question for you fellas.. My wife has a 95 subaru legacy and i noticed that the overflow bottle was always low over the past few weeks. I added des. water and thought it was just the heat and her long commute. Well I looked under the suby this am and it seems that there is a small drip on the back of the oil pan. I looked at the cylinder heads (flat 4) and the tops halfs look good. What I can see of the bottoms look okay as well. I changed teh oil 800 miles ago and it was clean and black. No foam or creamy look to it. What could this be from? I am leaning towards a bad cylinder head gasket but what else could i be looking at? Both the upper and lower hoses look good and don't leak. i guess it could also be the water pump but it is behind all hte timing belt covers... any insight? TIA, Tim

The 2.2 Litre engines were not polled under the head gasket recall poll above.

While the 2.2 litre has an excellent reliability record, it is not immune from an occasional head gasket failure. My thoughts would be to "fix" the water pump, then do the head gaskets, if the water pump replacement doesnt do the trick.
