I take it to the garage and have the mechanic pressure test it and we discover no leaks in the engine compartment, but we discover coolant coming threw the tailpipe, plz tell me what is the cost of that problem and how can I fix it.

Bad head gasket. Thats the only reason for coolant in the exhaust.

It most likely is a result of overheating.

The head will have to be removed, re surfaced, pressure tested.
