Hi billymac here. No not likely a head gasket. Most likely valve cover gasket. Their is a slight possibility of a head gasket prob, but I doubt it. Because all head gasket probs with the exception of the powerstroke and tritons are associated with coolant probs. As far as performance and mileage. Possibly fuel filter or major tune up. Hope this helps billymac
