My 2005 ford taurus is leaking antifreeze under the car in a puddle on the passenger side. i have had to add anti and water. It seems to be getting worse. Could I have a blown head gasket?

I would first check the radiator and heater hoses. Also check the radiator itself and your freeze plugs.

If you're not up to the task, get it in to a shop, a simple fix like a thermostat won't cost that much, but letting the problem go can cost you big time. You could also ask friends for help, swapping a thermostat isn't too involved, although it might seem daunting to a first timer.
