Engine Overheats and boils over

I have a 2007 Ford Ranger Sport with a 3.0 V6, it only has less than 27,000 miles on it. The water in the reservoir boils but it's not hot, it's just a lot of air pressure, also I have to keep adding water to the radiator because it evaporates out. The temperature gauge goes up then back down again?

I need to know what to do?

I love this site :-)

You have a blown head gasket in all likeliness. All of those symtoms point to that, perform a leakdown test to confirm or take it to someone who can.
