I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
It is most likely a blown head gasket or worse (cracked head or block). There is simple testing that can be preformed to verify, so this should be carried out.
I would not continue to drive it like this.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
