Also check to see if the smoke that comes out of your exhaust is white in color. If it is that means that your engine is trying to burn the antifreeze.
Sporadic temp guage and heater not working is one sign. This is also a sign of low fluid. Water blowing out of radiator cap is another sign. Especially if it is immediately after startup. A leakdown test is another metod that is best left to qualified technician. In this test they can determine if air is escaping out of cylinder and into radiator or is escaping from one cylinder to the adjacent cylinder.
If your oil level raises suddenly. If you loosen oil drain plug and antifreeze begins dripping instead of oil.
There are many many ways to find out. Some best left to the pros.

The cost to repair a blown head gasket on a 1993 Ford Explorer can range anywhere from $800 to well over $1,000. It usually takes between 7-10 hours of mechanical labor to fix a head gasket. Pricing will vary depending on the labor rate as well as the labor time.
You pull the head off and change the head gasket. There is no treatment for a blow gasket, exept changing it. Its a pretty huge job I would suggest getting it at the garage and get a quote.
White smoke from the exhaust is the most common sign. A compression test will tell you allot.

Most of the time you can tell by removing the radiator cap and having someone start the engine. Make sure you are not standing over it and you might want to lay a rag over the opening. If the head gasket is blown, then coolant will come out like "Old Faithful".
If you see no obvious leak from the hoses, radiator, water pump,or from the heater core, suspect a blown head gasket. Coolant in the oil, sweet smell at the tail pipe, air bubblesin the radiator, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, missing engine or loss of power, are all signs of a blown head gasket. A compression test will verify this. Caution: Stop drivng if the head gasket is blown. Severe engine damage will occur.

Usually you will see white smoke at the exhaust pipe. You will also lose coolant. Might not run too smooth.
