if this has been happening for a long time its possible there is damage to the cylinder head gaskets. You will need to have a cylinder head leakage test done. If the cylinder head gaskets are leaking you will not find a shop that will replace them as the cylinder heads rarely come off of these vehicles without damaging the engine block, 99% of shops out there will want to sell you a reman engine.
