Is the silicone bag intact in the header tank?

Any white smoke / steam coming out of the exhaust?  Normally the case if the head gasket has gone together with mayonnaise on the oil filler cap and dipstick as per Nostig's post.

 

There is also a tester that you put in the antifreeze that detects combustion contamination.
