I went to go check my fluids and noticed there was no coolant in the res or radiator . i was in a rush so i put water in the radiator but before i did that noticed there was a bit of wetness around the manifold. i put the water in and start the car and then it starts stumbling and white smoke begins to come out the back and check engine light goes on blinking rapidly . I turn off the car and notice puddles of coolant around the upper plenum and on the floor. I look today and my oil cap smells like antifreeze took off a pllug and its filled with oil and smelled like gas after trying to start it. What can this me please me tell its the manifold gaskets

Does the oil look normal, or is it light brown/white-ish smoothie looking?

Let me guess, non supercharged engine? Your leaking coolant in to your intake manifold. It'* coming in by your EGR. You will need to change the UIM gasket. I suggest looking in to plugging the coolant passages when you do that and this problem will not happen again. I'm also willing to bet your engine will not turn over. Your hydrolocked. Need to remove the spark plugs and replace them. This write up should help. https://www.gmforum.com/mechanical-134/uim-lim-gaskets-l36-297702/
