SOURCE: water shoots from radiator when
I am assuming that when your car is cold and the radiator cap is removed that turning the engine over causes fluid to spurt from the opening. If that is the case, pressure generated by the engine being cranked over is pushing the fluid at a high enough velocity to immediately blow out of the radiator. The only pressure that can be generated that quickly into the cooling system will be from a blockage that prevents the coolant from taking it's normal course through the engine. It takes the path of least resistance and pops out of the radiator. Or the head gasket is leaking combustive gases into system. There is a test procedure that your mechanic can use to determine if those gases are present in the fluid. It is a Bluepoint test kit sold by Snap-On.
