Sounds like you have coolant leaking into a cylinder. You can check this with a bore scope to see which cylinder is cleaner than the others.

If this is the case, pull the head and see where the water path is. Hopefully, it is either a bad seating of the gasket or a warping of the head. If it is the block that is not flat you will need to pull the engine.

It's not the block it got decked and honed ..I'm leaning towards the head gasket .now if it's a wrapped head is that fixable .?

You got the block decked but not the head? Was there a reason you didn't?

That's the thing I did send the head to get resurfaced and 3 angle valve job ..I'm guessing they didn't do a good job resurfacing the head ..
