Question about 2001 Dodge Neon
If you did not replace the radiator cap, replace it, it may not be sealing. If the cap was replaced and assumed good, and its pushing air into the overflow bottle then it is indeed overheating and you may have a head gasket leaking. A shop can do a "block check" where they use a fluid to check the cooling system for combustion gases, this fluid is blue, if it turns yellow then you may have a head gasket problem.

You may still have air in the system, and it is rising out of the engine, to the cap, then possibly to the expansion tank. With the engine COLD, remove the cap, start the car and let it run for a few minutes, shut it off and wait for about 10 minutes this will allow trapped air to evacuate from the system. Re check the cooling system expansion tank for proper level.
