Yep, number 2 cylinder burning coolant. See how clean the piston is.

Look between the valves for a crack. That is where they usually do if it is, but the gasket is most common. The compression ring may be pulled away from the gasket material.

I finally got both cynlinder sides off, I only broke one bolt for 2 pipes connecting the exhaust manifold pipes under the heat shield. The problem I have cleaning out the thread of the heads. I try using the loaner tool from autozone (OEM/Thread Restorer Set), the nuts seem to fit the bolts,but nothing fits in the threads of the heads to clean it out.

The dealer has the proper tools for that. Ask to borrow them and leave a deposit.
