A blown head gasket doesnt have to be indicated by milky oil or coolant. That would be my first guess for it shooting as you say it. Fot the heat not working, I just fixed that same car with a garden hose. May possibly be linked if it is a complete blockage. There are two black hoses coming from the firwall, thay go to the heater core, one is in and one is out. It comes from the water pump. Try unplugging both of them, and holding a garden hose on to it, if you can get it to flush freely through the other open end, you either got it unclogged or it wasn't clogged to begin with. Try that first, it won't cost you anything. You can make a fancy fitting, or just plug the black hose into the garden hose and wrap a rag around it if you don't mind possibly getting wet, with a coolant cocktail. Make sure the car isn't hot, unless you like to get burned too.
