93 cavalier 2.2l

have 93 cavalier will start up and run for 5 or 10 min then start sputtering and then will stop running acts like it has bad gas, but once it does this it will not start for rest of the day will start next morning. i have seen liquid coming out of tail pipe

Remove the oil dipstick and check the condition/level of the oil. If the oil looks like a chocolate milk shake and the oil level is higher than normal, and with liquid coming out of the tail pipe points to a breached head gasket.
