Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Your symptoms point to a combustion leak. If exhaust gases are entering the cooling system then it will cause excessive pressure in the cooling system as you have described. When exhaust gases are pushed into the cooling system and coolant is displaced or burned then it will cause the lack of heat you noted from lack of coolant in the heater core.

You can use a block test kit to check for a combustion leak, but I've found these kits to be somewhat unreliable. Your symptoms point to a combustion leak, if the test came back negative then I would recommend applying air to each cylinder with the radiator cap removed and engine cold, and watch for bubbles. Possible causes would be the head, headgasket and the block itself.
