Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
From what it sounds like yes it seems you have a blown head, check the oil to make sure there is no coolant mixed in with it, you would see green drops or it would look like whitish chocolate milk, there shouldnt be any unless you have a cracked block, but mostlikley you have a blown head since i dont think the intake runs coolant through it on these models do you smell a sweet scent from the exhaust? or does exhaust blow white smoke under acceleration? these are signs but from what your saying pretty sure you need a new HG, good luck let me know how it goes
if you take it to a shop they can do a leakdown test on the cylinders and if head gasket is blown you will see bubbles comming up out of the radiator when uncapped.
