Any good jeep mechanic

So any good jeep mechanics on oahu. My jeep is my project that I like to work on myself. But got a coolant leak somewhere and that might be above my skill level. Still trying to determine the source or it. But looking into engine from driver side it appears to be coming from top of the engine below the air intake. Oh and it's a 98 2.5cyl

A lot of people make a blown head gasket out to be the end of the world, but depending on the motor, it's not all that bad. Just tedious. I just replaced a broken lower shock mount last weekend. Again, not difficult just tedious. Took about 7 hours.
