First check for any loose hoses or leaks under the vehicle when its COLD (so in the morning after it sits). If there are no leaks it is most likely the head gasket that has blown. I wouldn't drive the vehicle but most insurance has towing to get it to a reputable mechanic or dealer for a fix. Unfortunately, it's a costly one. The national average is about $1200-$1400. Best of luck!
