A head gasket can leak cylinder pressure between the cylinders, Oil if the engine burns oil and it gets on top of the pistons. Mostly it leaks water into a cylinder and makes steam come out of the exhaust and blows bubbles in the radiator. Testing a head gasket for leaks. Remove the radiator cap and fill it right up to the neck. Warm up the engine until the thermostat opens. Give the top hose a couple of squeezes to expel any air that is in the tank, keep hands away from any moving parts and the fan in case it starts. Idle the engine and watch for bubbles in the water, keep it filled right up. Slow but continuous bubbles means that the head gasket or head it leaking.

SO, if you have oil in your coolant, coolant in your oil, combustion pressure in your radiator when the engine is running, or you are burning oil, it could be a head gasket.
