Do I have a blown head gasket or cracked head do you think? 1993 dodge ram 250 coolant coming from tailpipe, but no air bubbles or coolant in the oil. No oil in the rad either. All spark plugs are getting fouled with uncombusted gas, and heavy smell of unburnt gas in exhaust. Coolant leaking from engine and dripping underneath.

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like the coolant is just going directly into the combustion chamber. As far as my thoughts, chances are it is just a head gasket. However, you may want to have the head checked for cracks. I'm not sure which V8 you have, the 318 or 360, but both have heads that seem to hold up forever.

Let me know if you have other questions.
