loosing coolant out the cap

my 04 blows coolant out the res immedieatly after starting if the cap is removed. Any suggustions about the EGR cooler or head gaskets or other possible solutions. It will hold on a pressure test.

Sounds like you blew a head gasket, or both. My Cummins did the exact same thing. Crack your oil drain plug and see if coolant runs out first. Would You happen to be one of the owners of Kokosing?
