With nearly 200K miles on your head gasket, you are at or beyond the service life of the head gasket. Just a thought. They do wear. There is slight movement between the head and block.

Letting a HG go too long can result in other damage, such as to the head surface (no biggie) or the block deck (biggie). DAMHIK.
