Sounds like you might have a blown head gasket pressurizing the cooling system. Is there any coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant? You could pull the spark plugs and you might/might not see a little rust on one or more of them. You can also pressurize the cooling system to see if it holds pressure. Good luck.

Seems a bit crazy to go right to head gasket... Also checked oil and coolant both look and smell like they should

Have the radiator cap pressure tested to see if it vents properly a little over 18 psi.

Thanks can I just take it to an auto parts store to have it tested or is it worth the 3bucks I can get it for just to put on there?

You could just get a new one.
Make sure it's the proper one for your car and not one of those with the release lever.
