Check your heater hoses, that's where the water ciruclates into the heater from the water pump.

Why would steam be coming out from the radiator cap?

Radiator caps are pressure relief valves. They are rated at "pounds per square inch" and are designed to release some pressure from the radiator if it gets too high. If an engine overheats it can boil the coolant and this will cause the radiator cap to let out steam. Radiator caps DO lose their ability to regulate pressure and can release too soon. If the engine has not overheated, have the radiator cap tested and replaced as necessary.

Why is antifreeze blowing out from the radiator cap of a Nissan Titan?

If it's just blowing out when you start it you probably have a cracked head or blown head gasket. If there is oil in the radiator there is a change you have oil coming in from the transmission cooler. But there would have to be a lot of oil to make antifreeze come out the radiator cam. Since you did not mention oil I would suspect the head gasket. If you got it hot I would lean toward a cracked head.

Sounds like your car is overheating, or at least there is a small leak in the cooling system somewhere. Job one, would be to be to look under the hood while the steam is present to determine it's source. I'd suspect a hole in a radiator hose or in the radiator itself. It could be a leak in the reservoir too. Is the cap on it nice and tight and sealing OK?

Why would the upper radiator hose constrict in your 1985 Toyota truck with a 22r?

check your thermostat, it may be blocked. Your water pump is pulling water from the radiator but none is coming out of the engine so you have a vacuum. This most probably means that you are low on coolant as well.
