Hi Zeak and thanks for your answer, do you happen to know how many core plugs there are? I could only find one with my inspection mirror and it wasn't leaking, and other than a little oil around the back of both head gaskets, I couldn't see any water... also the trans fluid stick and the oil stick do not show any signs of water. the only other sign I have is the heater wouldn't produce any heat, could it be as simple as a t-stat stuck closed?

I would say you got a head gasket leaking causing pressure to build in the radiator which will not let the coolant to circulate. You can put a pressure gauge on your radiator to tell if it is over pressure. the pressure is coming from a cylinder that is leaking while running and may not be leaking when off. Did you get the engine hot?
