Hi there,

These are all the signs of a blown head gasket, a check of exhaust gasses in the cooling system will prove this, but I feel that the head will be the problem. The head will have to come off and be crack tested and surfaced at a minimum, when the head is off make sure that the block is spotless and that you replace the head bolts as well.
