Did you also check the condition of your heater core and its hoses it may have a small hole or leak that cause air to enter your cooling system. Did you already check your freeze plugs? How about your intake manifold gasket?

It may be deteriorating. You may have an internal coolant leak. You can perform pressure test to your cooling system.

You can find the freeze plugs on the sides of the engine/cylinder block and/or cylinder head, these are the expansion plugs or casting plugs. It may develop leaks (if the flat steel plugs are corroded from the inside out) that are hard to see since the location of the plug’s are behind the exhaust manifold and other engine accessories.

It was the Head Gasket.It was gone. I replace it and send the engine block to machine shop to check it.They said it was fine and it got reface.So, I save about $800. Just replace Head Gasket Kit and did a tune up,now run like new..Thanks AutoMD .
