Does this sound like I need new head gaskets?

The fluid comes out brown like there's oil in it.???
Can you help?

Sure sounds like a blown HG too me...
Not sure exactly what you mean by the fluid being pushed out. If you are talking about the coolant, and you mean it's not "pressurized", it could be due to low.
But in any case, oily residue in the coolant is a sure sign that you have a leaky gasket. A second opinion from a mechanic doing some diagnostics should confirm it.
Not the end of the world, but you've got a job on your hands.
good luck, John

coolant in the oil will eat away the bearings in the bottom end

Atleast that will come in handy when I put my ACT clutch in my RS to handle the power of my T U R B O kit.
