94 z28 coolant issue

All of my coolant goes from the radiator to the reserve after filling it cold, then driving for 5 minutes. I already have the car going in for head gaskets, but what else could it be ?

Bad radiator cap will cause that, and will also cause overheating.


That said, how many miles on the engine, and why head gaskets?
Did it fail a coolant combustion gas check?
