    Sounds like you have a blown head gasket, How does the engine run?

    i had the same issue with mine... it was the upper and lower intake gaskets... have someone look at it to tell for sure but if u research it its a very common problem... it costed me 450$ and now there is no problems.... also if you do have the gaskets replaced look for an aftermarket replacement gasket because if you put the one on that gm recommends then you could run into the problem again in 2 or 3 years
