I dont if every parts store carries is but I kno NAPA does.Its called a head gasket leak check kit it contains a syphon tube and a blue chemical that turns colors when exhaust gas from coolant system is mixed with it.It will help diagnose a busted headgasket.

Pull your plugs and take note of any differances in the plugs. Pull your thermostat like cold 23 said and make sure the pointed end was installed tword the radiator and the other end was installed tword the firewall. Check oil dipstick and oil for any milky residue.
