First off I gotta admit that I don't know much about engines. So heres my problem: When driving at most speeds while applying gas, i hear a sound like air being pushed through a small hole. But if i let off on the gas, the engine quiets down again. I am slowly loosing coolant (I don't think I have any leaks) and the exhaust constantly blows a thin white smoke.
I think that my head gasket is damaged, which would explain why I am loosing coolant right? and that could also explain the noise - which sounds like air being pushed through a small hole. Am I right so far?
If this is the case, does it need replacing? will it get worse? will it damage the engine? How hard is it to fix? What would it cost of I took it somewhere? and how hard is it to remove the head from the engine block?
Any help would be appreciated... Im screwed aren't I?
