Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank

you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

Coolant boiling out of reservoir, overheating.

You have insufficient coolant inside radiator that it boiled during running. Just top your coolant to normal level and re try your car. If still boiled you may have : - clog up radiator or - defective thermostat
Check also the radiator and hoses for leaks.

Coolant light comes on

Ouch. Been down that road.

Sounds to me like a head gasket problem.

Pull your oil dipstick.

Is your oil watery?

Does your dipstick smell like coolant?

Does your coolant have an oily film on it?

You can have a dye leak test done to confirm it.

Should you be able just to have the head gaskets changed and not the engine, again..insist on thenewest, brand name, top of the line gaskets

Best of luck.

02 Jaguar S Type - Heater blowing cold air

Has the vehicle overheated recently, if not there is a failure of the Coolant from engine valve controller, that measures flow through the Heater Matrix. Come back with more, as necessary.

The use in modern engines is not recommended because of the high temperatures encountered by the coolant. Etylene glycol or other antifreeze products also raise the boiling point of the water, to better avoid overheating. you will get it in professional garage shops or car repair shops but taske care you do not use water only object in plase of cooland if they suggest as it will damage the part.

Engine low coolant light/overheating engine with white smoke

The condensation inside the hood would bee from the coolant boiling out of the reservoir when it overheated. However, there must be a reason for the overheating and I can imagine it is not good. If you JUST purchased this car, you should be protected by the Lemon Law. Return the car to the dealership and insist that THEY find the problem or supply you with another car. 
If you have had it a while, then find  good mechanic before you warp the head and trash the motor.
