its just started to get real bad used to only happen occasionally on drive lik 40min on highway
but now its started to do it realy bad like every time the motor is stoped.. doesnt leak while driving and dont use my air con

I would try a new radiator cap, but for it to be pissing out like that I would say that there is way to much pressure in the system.

Ps. Sorry if this double post's, for some reason its been happening lately.

Cheers,
Tomo

Keep a close eye on it, and I hope it is just a faulty cap because there are other reasons for the system having too much pressure.

Had same problem with my ef xr6, new cap solved the problem so hopefully it does yours. By the way do you work at resident hero as I seen your car there a few times. My mate's shed is adjacent to you with the trucks and bobcats. He has the blue wrx and his old man has the grey xy ute.
