Sounds like cyclinder head gasket is blown. this engine must have given you warning signs ie,low on water/coolant rising temps,car running bad,but as this is not a toyota fault, i would check the thermostat or look for a leaking water hose.adrian

2004 opel zafira 1.8 overheating no leaks visible but boiling in filler bottle ?

The boiling in the bottle could be combustion gas from a failed cylinder head gasket.

If there is residual pressure in the bottle when the engine is cold it is virtually guaranteed to need a head gasket.

What could be the cause why my toyota paseo 1991 keeps on boiling in the overglow bottle even though my car is not overheating

I doubt it's actually boiling over. More than likely you've blown the head gasket on the car and the pistons are pushing compressed air back into the water system and it coming out the bottle. If you continue to drive the car the gasket will deteriorate and the coolant will start to get into the cylinders and oil. At that point you may be looking at crank bearing damage and a warped or cracked head.

Water boiling out of water bottle

don`t sound good, but i would see if water was circulating in radiator when warm,and check if fan comes on like it is supposed to to cool it ,if water does not circulate check hoses to make sure the suction does not restrict flow ,if no circulation you could try replacing thermostat (cheapest fix ) anti-freeze dilution (second cheapest ) or uh-oh maybe blown head gasket......

How can i stop coolant bottle from boiling and bring out coolant?

Mix new/ fresh coolant correctly, insure water pump is pressurizing system, ensure thermostat is opening, and then ensure that you have flow throughout your system.

Note: If you have a blown head gasket, your coolant may not actually be boiling, but releasing the compression from your cylinder(s) into your cooling system and blowing air out of your reservoir.

2008 corsa utility overheating & water is boiling & pushing out through the water bottle

I see two possible causes.
1) Something is blocking air from cooling the radiator. Is there any debris like leaves blocking the radiator?
2) Something is preventing coolant from flowing through the engine. Could be a water pump failure.
Make sure your engine old level is within proper range.

Yes it is normal just no hot air

1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.
