Answers :

Probable cause "blown" head gasket due to overheating resulting in head warpping. This head are aluminum alloy and warp relatively easy. Fix remove the head and take it to a automotive "reliabable" machist (I found one at a NAPA store. and have them 1.) check to see if warpping is beyond repair (resurfacing) and pressure check the head for leaks (don't let anyone say they can do it visually, if teh ydo walk away). If all OK it should run you about $100 (testing & resurfacing).
\015\012The big job is getting the head out. Unless you know what you are doing don't try to tackle the job youself, the engine is a dual overhead cam engine adn if you don't set it up right, you will invent new cuss words. Lots of wire connectors anf vaccuum lines to content with but very little room to access many of them.
Most likely a severely blown head gasket or a warped head,was the motor overheated?
