D.H. is right on...

If coolant is leaking into the cylinders that will raise the compression in those cylinders. The question is will it bump it to a performance 11:1 compression ratio, or will it bend up your engine components with a 18:1 compresstion ratio?

It is possible that your head bolts just need to be re-torqued to the proper spec, but more than likely you will need to replace the head gasket.
