Your car may fall under the class action suit being settled by GM due to its requirement of the use of Dexcool. It forms a brown "sludge" that causes more damage to the car. My head gasket has had to be replaced twice in less than 3 years. Search for GM and Dexcool and see what you can find about the suit. Best of luck! Another possibility is that the fan is not running while the car is on. This can be fixed easily with a hot-wire under the hood of the car that bypasses electrical systems and makes sure the fan is blowing at all times when the car is on.
