overflowing coolant !

Hi guys new here. But in desperate need of help. So it started about month ago, what is happening is I will go out start up the truck in the morning and put it on high idle and come out and there's about half gallon of radiator fluid on the ground. Noticed it was coming out degas tank cap. So I bought a new 16lb cap, and still continued to do it. Its almost like there to much pressure on system. I did the test strip on head gasket but its coming up negative , there's also no diesel in coolant or oil. Also noticed there's no heat in cab intill thermostat kicks open. Also another quick question I went to get a fuel filter and both stores I went to gave me a filter that did seem to tall to fit in fuel bowl and I gave them right info on year make and model my current filter seems to be inch shorter. 96 f250 powerstroke. Thank you if you can help.
