If no external leaks chances are really good that you have a possible blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. A block check should be performed.

Prices vary so much from area to area, around here it might run 600 bucks labor.

Gone in a few minutes - got to be a leak . Head gasket would be a lot of SMOKE out the tailpipe for it to be gone that fast. Check the oil stick to see if the oil is discolored like coffee milkshake. It could be going into the crankcase via head gasket but still sounds like a bad leak like a radiator - on these they are plastic. Good Luck
