It sounds like it is time to get your engine flushed out,professionally While they are at it,have them check for head-gasket leaks...Coolant,backing out of cap,sounds like a blown head-gasket-sorry,for the bad news...

Blown head gasket on exhaust side,bad news,sorry.whenyou get it fixed never use water out of the home water supply,always use distelled water with the collent,it wont rust up the colling system.
