Q: why is air bubbling back through coolant resevoir on 1991 GMC Suburban 2500

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
air bubbles back through coolant resevoir constantly pushing coolant into the reservoir & not allowing it back into cooling system thus causing "low coolant" light to come on.this happened after an overheating episode when i noticed my temp go up to about 210 briefly. i immediately replaced thermostat & radiator which was leaking a little. the bubbling reservoir started after these repairs.
I'm suspicious you have a blown head gasket or two. A mechanic could check for combustion products in the coolant fumes to detect carbon moxide (CO). If there's CO ion the coolant, you have a head gasket problem. I'd check that first.
