OVERHEATING

1996 Toyota Tercel

Engine Cooling problem
1996 Toyota Tercel 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic

I regularly check the coolant level in the plastic reservoir. One day the engine overheated and I was told that it was probably the radiator cap. Bought a new 13lbs cap. Not overheating any longer, but I noticed that when I check the radiator in the morning, it looks " empty", but the reservoir bottle is almost full. What does that mean?
