yeah hey asking for a little help

not real good with cars but willing to learn,

i think i might have blown a head gasket on my 95 model ef xr8

its running rough under load ie when your driving and its been chewing through heapsa oil and leaking oil plus its been going through heapsa water aswell like i fill up the resevior and go for a long drive and check it after a few days and it needs more.

like i said im not that mechanically minded so any help would be appreciated

i might be just jumping to conclusins

check your oil to see if there is any water droplets present, similarly check your water to see if there are any black specs indicating oil leaks. This would show a head gasket blown. Also, have you noticed any excessive white smoke from the exhaust or black smoke. Finally, you can do a compression test on all your cylinders to make sure there arn't leaks.
