car over heating Sign In

good morning!!! we have a 2006 pontiac gran prix3.8L. the car keeps over heating!!!we put antifreeze50/50coolant in the radiator. it does not seem to hold, not even 5 minutes.of driving and the needle goes up. then i will check the radiator level and it will be very low. i can smell it over heating again.i checked the oil seems to be normal. meaning it is not milky, looks clean. what could it be ? what should i do next ? thank you for your input

The first thing you have to do is pressure test the cooling system to find the leak and repair it. Then see if you have done any internal damage by driving it that way.
