Turns out I had a pinhole leak in one of the heads. Replaced it and every thing is now OK. Was told this is not surprising because the coolant required by Chevy is very corrosive on the aluminum used in the Chevy heads.
This is my first car and i had only had it about 3 weeks,i only use it to go to work and back and taking my boyfreind to work, about 2 miles a day, the low coolant light came onon wednesday, thursd...
