Ok, If you get a head gasket leak diagnosis, ALWAYS get a second opinion since, as you know, they are pricey.
Also, a head gasket leak will often manifest itself with the following symptoms which you can often check for yourself:
Start with the obvious; Add dye to your coolant, and have a mechanic shine a blacklight after a cleaning of your engine/underbody to determine the source of the leak, and then of course, look for white smoke (sign of burning coolant; ie, Blue/Gray smoke is burning oil) and go on from there.
The more details you can share with me, the less blind I become, and the more I can help.
