Unless you can find a coolant leak somewhere, you most likely have a blown head gasket. If you do it yourself, it'll cost around $60 plus (maybe) the cost of getting the head resurfaced by a machinist (less than $100). If the head is flat and the gasket isn't burned, cracked, or misshapen, then you may have a cracked head or block.
