Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
Fill radiator and coolant fills the block and gurgles into the head
Coolant filling the engine oil? I would suspect a head gasket or piston liner gasket failure, I this is happening when you fill radiator and engine is still off I would look at the block itself for a crack in the piston wall(internal damage), if this is while running consider the head gaskets

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.
