Coolant issues

My 1995 D90 has had coolant spitting out of the reserve for a while now. So I had the radiator flushed and checked. Still happens. Next put on a new cap since the previous one was an aftermarket one and 16lbs. Still happens but not as much comes out. Any suggestions?

Head gasket over pressurizing the system. Pull you spark plugs and look for a steam cleaned one.

Yep. You can also get a bock tester at Napa-- do a search, I've listed the number before. Sometimes, as with mine, I couldn't tell from my spark plug alone. Start with the plugs-- it's free to check those, but if it is undetermined, them I'd get a block tester. It is like a giant test tube that you pull air from your reservoir through-- if fluid changes color, you have issues. Mine turned out to be a slipped liner....
