As in overflowing from the cap? Your cap is bad if it's doing that.

Sometimes that's a sign of cracked head or head gasket. Do compression test and check oil for antifreeze.

A leaking head gasket could allow too much pressure into the system and the weak point is the cap. Check for oil in the water

simple way to tell if head gasket leakage is going into cooling uncap the reservoir and turn the car on, if coolant spews out like a fountain head gasket, other than that i had my cap go bad, that's y the coolant leaked out from the cap area on the reservoir. i changed the cap no more worries. hope this helped
