The gasket may have failed again. Poor installation techniques are the biggest reason for a 2nd failure on these.
Not to say this is the case, but you need to find where the coolant is going. HEadgasket is another concern.
A pressure test to verify no extenal leaks are occuring would be a start. If it is good, the plugs need to be removed and checked over. IF nothing obvious, then keep the pressure tester on the systen over night with the plugs out.
Undo the oil drain plug enough so that you can collect a cup of oil before you start the engine. Check it for any coolant in the oil as it settles to the bottom.
If none crank it over with the plugs out and see if any coolant shoots out the cylinders.
Post back with the results.
