I’m scared shitless I might have that headgasket issue. (But the vehicle runs so well). Anyhow, does this ‘coolant …flowing out when I loosened the expansion tank cap’ prove one thing or another?
As previously mentioned, if you have a blown head gasket you should be able to see indications in the fluid. Any pressure caused by a blown head gasket should be gone not long after the engine is shut off and the engine will not run normally if you have a blown gasket.

please explain the process you used to bleed the system.
