I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like you are lookin at a rebuild at the very least.

i just blew my headgaskets at 150k. since the mileage is high and there is water in the oil, i was going to do a full rebuild. I found a complete rebuild kit for $572. add a little more for a good valve job and having your block hot tanked and new cam bearings installed. and it comes in around 1k bucks. its not that tough but just takes a little time. just my 2 cents!
