Default 1997 SL2 engine problem

I purchased a 2007 Saturn Ion because my 1997 SL2 was giving me engine problems. The dealer and mechanics that I took it too said it could be a busted head gasket or a cracked engine block. They were not for sure without having to take the engine apart. Is there a way to tell if it is the head gasket or a cracked engine block (they are recommending I buy a rebuilt engine)? I really want to get it repaired for I love it better then my Ion. By the way it has 180K miles.

Take it to another auto engine repair shop and get a second opinion.
