Yesterday I checked my coolant and it was almost empty
Turns out both my head gaskets and the metal tube that runs coolant into the intake manifold are all leaking

My car is a 2003 Gt with 29,000 kilometers on her (7 months old)

There is no coolant in my oil that I can see (on the stick and under the cap) and my car does not have a sweet smell to the emmisions. I can see orange crusties on the block at the head on both sides

Shes going in for repains Monday

Any reason for this?

the reason is GM designed a crappy gasket, and refuses to fix it. (unless your under warrenty)
