    Sounds like you have a bad intake or head gasket.

    Head gasket maybe, Intake gasket no. Coolant doesn't flow through the intake on the LS series of engines.

    Also i would check to see if the power steering fluid is low/mixed with coolant... sometimes our power steering coolers go bad and PS fluid will leak into the radiator.

    No just a long complicated job ( depending on your mechanical experience skills)
