There could be several reasons, including the radiator being plugged up, the thermostat being stuck, and the water pump not working. Drain the coolant, and check for signs of rust or corrosion in the coolant. Remove the thermostat, replace the coolant, and run the engine. If the problem persists, take it to garage. Troubleshooting by changing out parts will be too expensive. check and change thermostat if done this problem is either head gasket or cracked head

A lot of times ingrown hairs are the cause of boils. Also, having too much staph on the skin or excess bacteria.

The best indication of a bad thermostat is when the radiator fluid (Antifreeze) boils over from the reserve tank, not the radiator. This is caused by the thermostat not opening at its preset temperature and all the extra antifreeze is pumped directly to the reserve tank. You will also have loss of power and the vehicle will likely stop running soon after the antifreeze boils over.

What causes the water to evaporate? For me, heat causes the water to evaporate, like the boiling water in the kettle. When it boils you can see moist on the top of the kettle. So the heat causes the water to evaporate. =D

It cannot increase any further and the energy transfered to the liquid causes evaporation

This is because water has a high boiling point, which means, it boils faster as compared to other liquids/fluids and therefore radiator faster.

Your question sounds more like a statement! well so your coolant reservoir plastic tank has overheated and probably has hot steam shooting out of it.. this is probably due to either your thermostat getting stuck shut. but it is most likely your radiator has some sort of hole or leak. When the water in your radiator is sealed the water boils at a very high temperature wich is a good thing. but when the seal is gone the water boils at normal driving temperatures. check your radiator hoses and the radiator itself for any leaks.. good luck
