That is because it is hot ( over heating ). You need to check all 4 corners of the intake manifold with your fingers to see if it is leaking antifreeze. Chevy had a problem with the intakes leaking engine coolant. There is a heater hose fitting screewed into the left rear corner of the intake and thay are none for leaking engine coolant too. You should check the water pump for leaks too.
