If your head gasket is leaking, change the head gasket. Don't use those additives that "seal" your gasket, they don't work. You're mixing fluids with a bad head gasket. I'd check the oil if I were you, probably nice and watery.

Thanks, I checked The oil and Coolent, are clear. Mechanics suggested ,that it leak out site, driver side front, Head Gasket, Visible to anyone eye. But Mechanics or me, neither, did not know other side of the head(back) Gasket. Mechanics only suggested front head Gasket, Leaked, only to change. But, Ask me change other 500$ more. My Big Question is. Why is Stop 5 minutes later? Engine Rotation, sound, became slow and suddenly Stop. Is it Fuel pump, Dirty Air Filter, pcv Valve, Thermostat. Timing Belt, Water pump ? please give me some advise! I am really appreciated
