Yes, it might not be a headgasket issue. But if it was you would need to perform a cylinder pressure test and or leak down test. You can do it yourself in your driveway. Check online or youtube on how to perform the test. Involves having a pressure gauge and removing the spark plugs. Replacing the headgasket and machining the heads, are best left to the pro's.
