this is what it is doing :(. i know you have to burp the radiator but this is rediculous. the water is like boiling out. the temp gauge is fine but i have to keep putting water in it.

PUt the radiator cap back on it. What's the issue that you are running your car warm with the radiator cap off?

The point of your rad cap is to pressurize the coolant which raises the boiling point higher. With it off the boiling point is to low and confusing the car. Definitely keep the cap on.
