You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

it is the head gasket blown from the cyl to the water jacket ,a radiator specialist can test for combustion gases in the water to confirm this ,but that is what it is . "youdoit"

Testimonial: "compression test ok still looking"
There is a possibility it is overfull. Ford put out a TSB which lowered the hot full level on the recovery tank about an inch. These recovery tanks also have had a history of developing pinholes and cracks on the top side that sometimes appear to be leaks from the cap. If you do not find a remedy with the tank itself, there are tools that can be used to check for combustion gasses in the cooling system. If you find combustion gasses in the cooling system, have the EGR cooler pressure tested before pulling the heads. If you do have to pull the heads replace the headbolts with ARP studs and nuts.
