Have you checked your engine oil for any signs of water in it? It looks like a head gasket problem if there are any signs in oil, otherwise the system has an airlock and needs to be bled properly.

My fiat palio 16 valve, its boiling I took the themostat out but its still boiling and the fan is running properly I was thinking maybe my water pump is not circulating the water!

I'm thinking you have a head gasket problem
have a compression test done
put a new thermostat back in the right way
(removing a thermostat allows the coolant to flow to fast to exchange the heat to the air passing through the radiator

The water on my car keeps heating up alot and it goes into the engine coolant resevoir leaving the rediator dry

You need to replace the radiator pressure cap. I would also replace thermostat, drain and flush radiator to start. If it continues the water pump may be not pumping water. If the thermostat is stuck closed it wont allow water to cycle through the engine causing it to boil and the pressure cap is not holding the pressure allowing it to flow to the reservoir. So first change the thermostat and the radiator pressure cap.

You might have a head gasket going south on you,Here is a test you can do to confirm it,Take your overflow line and stick in a clear bottle with water start the engine an see if you have bubbles in the bottle,if not at start up wait till engine gets up to temp and the thermstat is open, if you have bubble you are getting compression in your coolant system,I hope this helps you And thanks

I own a 1990 Mazda 626. It continues to run hot, no matter how much coolant or water I put in the radiator or tank. I think my bypass hose is cracked and my radiator cap is broken. When I stop, shut it...

have you checked your
thermostat, most of the time it is that make sure that you check that your water pump is also working if after you have checked all this you must check and flush your whole radiator system.

Keep overheating ,wont hold water in radiator

If it overheats very quickly, it likely has a bad thermostat. If the radiator does not fill easily when re-filling, likely the radiator is internally blocked and requires either a flush, boil out or replacement. Make sure any electric fans are properly operating. If you have any white smoke or coolant in engine oil, you may have a blown head gasket. A shop can identify this condition by checking for hydrocarbons in the cooling system, or by doing a compression or leakdown test.Do the easy stuff first...change the thermostat. If problem continues, go further with your diagnostics.
