Truck won't start now
My truck is loosing all the engine coolant, but I can't find any external leaks. I have to fill the radiator and the coolant container everyday. the service engine soon come on, and i put the scanner, and P0125 code shows on. what the problem could be, where the engine coolant goes, there is a bubbling noise coming from the small heater inside my truck by the passenger side, but I checked inside, and it is totally dry.
Noise when weight shift side to side. Removed tire and when shifting the drum back and forth the noise is duplicated.
Ive got gas I've charged battery starter fluid won't start new starter

I had a coolant leak in the rear part of the engine and it turned out to be a lower intake manifold gasket. I replaced the gasket and then the cast aluminum quick disconnect for the heater hose broke. I replaced the lower intake manifold and in the process messed up the timing. I attempted starting and the bad timing caused one of the bolts holding the starter on break causing the starter to be out of place. I replaced the bolts and got the starter set correctly and set the timing correctly by finding TDC. Now the issue is not getting enough power to the spark plugs. The coil pack isn't putting out enough power so I tried a new coil and nothing changed. I thought it was maybe the wiring except it's got new wires going to the coil. Any help is greatly appreciated.
This is a Chevy k1500 z71 5.7L V8 Vortec. I checked the freeze plugs and they were not damaged any.

My 1994 Chevy 1500 has a digital control unit for my heater and A/C. The temp control uses arrows to show where the temp is set. All of these arrows flash at the same time and I am unable to change the temp settings. I changed out the unit with a new one figuring it had gone bad. The same thing happens with the new one. Can you give me any ideas of what might fix this problem?
