E46 318i N42 headgasket blown symptoms

Good day. My car decided to not start anymore while i was at car wash. Swings strong but not taking. Checked all symptoms, even replaced my fuel pump but still no luck. Took car to my mechanic and he diagnosed the head gasket is blown. Now my confusion with this is that my car never over heated, never used water nor leak water and no oil and water mixing. Prior to the car not starting it started pulling extremely slugish. Like the vvt motor was not kicking in. No misfire only when idling it would sound like the car has a modified camshaft. 2 weeks after this the car died and wouldnt start again. Is this symptoms of a head gasket on its way of blowing or what can it be?
