I'll check now
Be sure to fill the radiator with coolant or distilled water before you check for bubbles or there will be bubbles from the circulation, not necessarily a leak in the intake or head gasket...

That doesn't sound good. My first inclination would be to check the oil level on the dipstick and see if it is over the fill line as oil floats on water, you can see if there's oil higher than the full line you have in internal leak that's in need of fixing ASAP... What engine is this in your car?

The original inline 6
I would start by checking your oil then, pull your coil wire and crank the engine while someone stares into the radiator after filling it to see if you get any bubbles. following that, a radiator pressure tester from HF is cheap enough for a tool to keep around to test your cooling system for leaks. Otherwise, could be a myriad things on the 6. @Twisted6 & @Twinshadows , any ideas?
