Have the system pressure checked, look for leaks, pressure check will show if system is leaking, even if you don't see a leak, means it would be internal to the motor (head gasket). Look closely at hose connections, heater core, radiator.

In the mean time, keep an eye on the oil level in the motor, and watch the exhaust for a lot of white smoke. Oil level getting higher, and exhaust are indications of a bad head gasket.


Check your top gasket or there is a core c on a head, block or pipes

Thanks for those who advised me to look at the head gasket. the was a pin between the gasket and the head, which means the top was not level. problem is now solved.
