2001 buick century Sign In

I have a 2001 Buick century, V6, with 130000 miles. A while ago the engine started to run hotter, then fluid would spill out through the over flow. I pulled the radiator and had it flushed, where I was told there was quite a bit of sludge. Although the car continued to run hot. I replaced the hoses and radiator cap also. It seemed to help for a bit, but now back to running hot and over a few days the radiator fluid low. No white smoke with starting car and the last time I changed the oil there was no water in the oil. Could it be a cracked head?

Your first step would be to pressure test the cooling system to try to determine where your losing coolant to. This engine has a known problem with leaking intake manifold gaskets.
