Ok my compression is

1 = 181
2 = 175
3 = 175
4 = 185

question is could my head gasket be blown with those kind of compressions????

What else could cause coolent to be pushed up into the overflow??

with that kind of compression im sure your headgasket isnt the problem does it just keep pushing coolant into the overflow or just a lil bit if it constantly does it i would try a new radiator cap and use a good brand see if that does it first if not then its something more serious.

Your compression is still within limits. Its fine. But your Head Gasket could still be a little warped if the engine has been overheating.Is your car overheating at all..or is fluid just flowing into the overflow?

Your Head gasket is warped. I was in the same situation with my LS/Vtec 4 years ago. Replace your head gasket.

Check the thermostat. Sounds like it could be sticking and causing it to over heat. I think your head gasket is fine.
