Sounds like a possible head gasket issue.

do a compression test on it . to see if it has a bad head gasket.

Agreed with everyone, sounds like a head gasket. Like 4X4xdodgeman said do a compression check but also do a leakdown check, listen for air in the block, bubbles in the coolant system, and adjacent cylinders.

yes, pull the coolant cap and check for bubbles surfacing. Are you down coolant? Have you checked?
