Are you using the correct mixture of water and anti-freeze? If you are not using anti-freeze, the water will boil.
The water can also boil if you have a blown head gasket.

Another possibility is a bad radiator cap. If it won't hold pressure, things will boil.
The system is designed to operate at a temperature above the boiling point of water. Pressure and the anti-freeze solution should keep it from boiling.
Boiling is bad. You don't want that to be happening.

Hey sorry to hear about the car trouble there. However i just finished fixing that issue on my 1999 CHRYSLER SEBRING CONVERTIBLE.
The first thing i would do is check the level of antifreeze at the radiator cap (with the engine cool and off) if its mising some, add afterwards replace the radiator cap. The cap should do the trick, however if the problem persists, have a mechanic look at as it may be something more serious.

I've been following your problems with this car for a while now. With all that you've done it sounds to me like there is something more like compression leaking into your water system. That happens when blocks or heads crack or warp, and blow headgaskets. Those are serious issues. You've been battling this air in you tank for quite a while, as well as your fan and overheating issues. Nothing will work correctly if you are blowing air into the cooling system from the cylinders. And overheating routinely causes warps and blown headgaskets.

I JUST HAD THIS PROBLEM! I didn't think it was serious but I took it to a mechanic anyway, He filled it up with water and said keep a eye on it but it overheated again! so when i got home I let it sit overnight, Then when it was completely cool i tried to put water in it,
Well the water is leaking right out of it and I cannot find where it is leaking! i know it is under the air intake somewhere in the middle but I dont know if it is a hose or what!
someone please help me!!! I am a single mother of 4 and this is the only transportation we have, We live in the country and I can't even get to work!
Thanks everyone Signed, Desperate single mom

I found out that it is leaking underneath I think it is called the intake manifold? Underneath the big metal thing on the top of the motor with the port on the side that says holley on it,
