Exclamation kill me please!

I'm ready to cry. Here's the rundown: My 3.9 block acted like it had blown the head gasket last year (500 miles away In the mountains of west virginia). So, I change that, had the heads done put it all back together and it was still losing all the coolant out the exhaust. So, I figure I misdiagnosed it and it was a cracked block. So, I buy a 4.6 block have the heads inspected again and I finally put it back together. It immediately starts pumping coolant out the exhaust pipe- this time like a bilge pump! UNREAL- I almost lost it right then. So my concensus is that maybe the machine shop didn't see a crack in the heads and it's dumping into the combustion chamber? Now I had that machine shop mill the heads, do the valves, supposidly pressure test them and all that. What's the concensus?
