SOURCE: radiator leak
if you want to make sure you can put some soap bubles on the hose and see where the leak has actually taken place as a first step in diagnostic.
just pour the soap on the top and you can see (not inside the radiator), once it blows then there is your leakage.
either the radiator itself is the prob or the hose

bad headgasket = water in oil (milky) or oil in water (foamy I think).
but yea, ah... I had a Ford once. My experience is that once something like this starts the only thing you can do to repair it is to buy a japanese car. lol

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

Remove the thermostat and run the car. Without the thermostat you should see FULL flow thru the radiator. You can pull the top radiator hose WHERE IT ATTACHES TO THE RADIATOR and start the engine with a garden hose stuck in the filler opening. Don't turn the hose on so hard that it blows water out the radiator hose. You want to water pump to shoot water out the disconnected hose, not the garden hose. A hose COULD be blocked, but it would have to be a pretty big blockage to cut off all flow. Not likely in my opinion. You could take them off and look in them and the heater hoses too. You can blow compressed air thru the heater core to see if it is blocked. As for it being the water pump...they rarely break so bad they won't pump water. Usually the seal goes bad and they leak water out the shaft. Look around, I kinda think you have a bad thermostat. Stuck closed. Drop it in boiling water and see if it opens. You didn't say what engine is in the Camaro, but most of them have a small bypass hose on the top of the water pump running to the intake manifold. Pull it off and see if water sprays out when the engine is running.

make sure thermostant is good. most important is to make sure you didnt blow a gasket when it overheated, if you have a 3.8 engine those are famous for blowing headgasket. anyway have a block test done first, its a liquid they use to see if exhaust gases are entering the cooling system, good luck ,hope this helps.
