MITSUBISHI SHOGUN ENGINE PROBLEM

1996 Mitsubishi Shogun • 170,000 miles

Noticed today that my car started overheating when I pressed the accelerator, then cooled down again when I eased off. An ex mechanic friend of mine said to take off the radiator cap and see what happens when the car is on idle. Well, with a totally cool engine, after about 10 seconds a lot (i mean loads!) Of white foam spews out of the radiator, and doesnt stop doing it even with running the car on idle for 3 mins.

panicing a bit about what would cause this?
thanks in advance!

Check coolant level first then have pressure checked for an internal leak, it may be just air in engine
