Unfortunately the answer is really bad as well. Two things it could be is, first, one or both headgaskets are blown or a cracked head, and secondly the block may be cracked. A compression test usually will reveal the source. Answer
If it is any of the above, there is a product called heal-a-seal that I used on my 1994 Continental and it took care of the problem. Mine was a blown headgasket. Worth a try-
1994 Continentals had a factory recall for the bad head gaskets leaking fluid into cylinders. My car was recalled by factory to the dealership and new head gaskets installed at no cost. Of coarse this was shortly after sold new.

Does the computer also say low coolant. On start-up mine did that so I'm pretty sure it does that to make sure you check that the coolant level is ok. If coolant level is good then the thermostat is probably stuck open.

Why coolant leaks when engine is off but heat wont work when engine running?

The heat is not working because you are very low on coolant, probably because of the leak. Seems to me that it should leak worse when it is running, so I am going to assume you are talking about the coolant overflowing the reservoir, in which case goes back to you being low on coolant and the engine boiling the coolant.

How does the coolant reservoir work?

when the engine is running and coolant will become hot to its operating temperature,the cooling system is under pressure,coolant will overflow and goes to coolant reservoir.when the engine goes cold coolant will go back to the rediator.

When running the ac the car will leak collant from reservoir?

I'm thinking the coolant level in the reservoir is to high to begin with. The cooling system has to work harder when the ac is running. The coolant expands as it heats up. If the coolant level was high to start with it will push out the excess.
