Sounds like you have a blown cylinder head gasket. Check your engine oil. If it is muddy/milky/chocolate milky, then water has seeped into the combustion chambers and also into the oil pan. Usually, this happens after the engine has been overheated. Here is our guide on how to properly check for a blown head gasket: https://www.2carpros.com/articles/head-gasket-blown-test

Hope this information helps.
