Have you seen the coolant level low in the radiator, is there sludge in the overflow bottle also?

Generally blown head gaskets will blow the coolant out of the radiator and into the overflow bottle, it is more than what the cooling system will draw back in when cooling down, so will leave the radiator low.
Coolant was leaking from the rear of the engine and dripping onto the exhaut hence the steam. The overflow was clean no sludge which kinda baffled me. The sludge that I could see was under the radiator cap and could feel more when poking around into the radiator.
Oil fil cap was clean as was oil and trans dipstick.
