SATURN SL2 COOLING FAN PROBLEM

1994 Saturn SL2

When my car idles it overheats and water, steam and antifreeze spew out of my radiator, the top of it but the cap stays on. It also has problems starting. The majority of the time when I go to start it it'll turn over but not start up without me holding the gas down. What is it?

The starting issue could be the idle air control valve. As far as the overheating, if it only happens when sitting still, chances are the cooling fans are not working. Check that.
