It Could Be Any Of The Three.Remove The Head, Have It Tested. After Checking Gasket. The Head May Be Warped From Overheating And Normal Use. If The Head Gasket Is OK. I Suggest To Have The Head Tested. But The Block Could Be Cracked. If The Car Has An Aluminum Head As Most Do It Probably Is The Head Is Cracked. Heck Run It By A Good Radiator Shop And Have It Tested Under Pressure. See What They Suggest. Sorry To Be Of Such Little Help. My Bet Head. Best To You
