Car overheats almost too much to drive if I don't constantly fill it up with water and even then it gets hot really fast. Is it safe to drive with a blown or failing head gasket?

    Where is your coolant going. Take the cap off on a cool engine and look for bubbles in the radiator. Any white smoke from exhaust, I mean fog smoke. Are you sure your thermostat is good. It's not blowing water back at you while filling radiator?
