If the head gasket is starting to go, the the water gets vapourized inside the engine. The water level will go down, sometimes you get white smoke from the exhaust, the car consumes more fuel and has less compression and performances.
If you are lucky, and you check the water you can drive a car with bad head gasket for many miles, before it blows completely and leave you on the middle of a motorway.
If the head gasket is starting to go better to fix it or to replace the car.
The part costs only thirty pounds or so here in UK, but the job is expensive, as you need to take apart the head.
Here in UK you dont pay less than four hundreds pounds, probably a bit more, depending on the garage.

Just got the same problem fixed myself. i thought it was the coil but turns out to be spark plugs and split breather hose in the engine!

We've have the same problem with ours. We found the fuel canister needed replaces. It's mounted near the back bumper with straps. The part cost us about 125 bucks and was pretty easy to replace. The trick is to get the bolts out without snapping them.

If you have added a leveling kit you need to buy 2" longer shocks. The short beds have this problem with the leveling kits. Mine did the same thing twice and then I removed the leveling kit and it has been perfect ever since.

Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, turn the heater on, crack open any/all bleed ports to release any trapped air, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket.
