Looks like you have 2 problems, possibly a FICM problem, and leaky headgaskets. You need to monitor the sensors with a scangauge or torque app etc. You need to know what your FICM voltage is and what your ICP and IPR readings are with key on engine off, and after its started when cold, and when warmed up. 9 times out of 10 coolant puking is headgaskets.
