These engines do have some head gasket problems. A good way to tell if head gasket is problem is to start engine when cold, if radiator hoses are hard within 2 minutes but coolant isn't hot that means head gasket is allowing pressure to build up. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
