If it only comes from the over flow, make sure it isn't overheating. Also, check for head gasket issues.

Try this first. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Does coolant shoot out? Let me know.

We found the problem, it was a crack in the reservoir container. Thanks so much for your help. Jim and Laurel
