Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Okay, the first thing that needs to be done is a compression and cylinder leak down test to confirm where to go next..
No one can say you have a blown head gasket with any accuracy without doing the tests first. If it's white steam coming out the tail pipe, then it can be a head gasket. If it's oil, it lingers in the air a bit and it's most likely an engine lower end problem. The oil pan may also need to be removed fora better visual inspection.
Once you have some answers to give from the testing I told you to do, that's when more information is available. We have to start somewhere.
Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and DO keep this link for when you need me again later on.
