A: This is due to a possible blown head gasket...

This is due to a possible blown head gasket near the number 6 cylinder on the engine. You have aluminum heads and may have a crack in the head. I would recommend having the system checked by a certified technician who can look over the car in person, detect any leaks, and advise you on a repair.
