oil leak front of motor

I have always had a small leak at front of motor. It was a drop or two a week but for the past few days it starting to really leak(BAD). It looks like its coming down at front of oil pan or above it a belt pulley. Should I use a stop leak or something like that until I get it fixed. Anyone have problems with theres leaking there.

Thanks Chris........

Probably a front seal leaking . You have to pull the harmonic balancer and then it's a piece of cake .

Not too bad , you can rent the puller / installer from autozone (or where ever ) . It is only pressed in place and then one big bolt in the center . Note , do not start engine with balancer removed . The seal is just pressed in .
