Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
There will be no flow rate to the reservoir at all because the reservoir is only there to collect and excess coolant that is ejected after the water expansion from heat has overcome the setting of the radiator cap. The reverse of this is when the system cools down a vacuum is created in the radiator and a another valve opens allowing water to be drawn from the reservoir to keep the radiator full.. If you have a flow from the radiator when the engine is running check for failed cap or have a compression test done to check for blown head gasket or cracked head

i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you may have a blown head gasket.
the coolant is probably not boiling in the reservoir, but if the head gasket has blown by a cylinder, some of the gas is escaping form the cylinder and bubbling up through the coolant.
a pressure check on the cooling system will confirm this, but you could also check the exhaust gas.
if it is white in colour, or has a sweet sugary smell, then this will mean that coolant is also being burnt in the cylinder.
please feel free to ask of you have any more questions.
