First off you stop driving the vehicle immediately. Otherwise you will destroy the engine. If the repair shop is within a couple of miles from your home and the engine is not overheating drive it there for repair. If it is over a couple of miles have it towed. You will have to have the head/heads removed and the gaskets replaced. You may also have to have the head resurfaced or replaced. This is a major repair and is not cheap.
