Sounds like a severely leaking cylinder head gasket. Your mechanic can verify that with a chemical test. He will draw air from the cooling system through a glass cylinder with two chambers partially-filled with a special dark blue liquid. If combustion gases are present, the liquid will turn bright yellow.
