Your radaitor cap is no good it shouldn't blow . The collant should go into the recovery tank through the hose just below the cap . I would try replaceing the cap and do a througho check of the entire colling system something cause this to happen the system blows at slightly over 14 lbs

My 2002 saturn boils over but does not overheat sometimes i will drive across town and all is fine sometimes i will drive 7 miles and reservoir will boil guessing thermistat water pump or cap

Of the water is boiling them it has run hot. There is no way around this fact. Get a compression test done first. This should reveal if any damage has been done. Then address the boiling off problem. This can be a air pocket in the line, incorrect anti freeze mixture, sticking thermostat, water pump, cap, etc.

If the overflow hose on my 03 pt cruiser with a 2.4L turbo is capped off will it make it overheat?

It should.
Here is the principle.
Water and coolant/antifreeze will expand when heated, as will the air trapped in the radiator and system.
If you cap off the overflow, the liquid will have no place to go, and will either go past the radiator cap or will blow up the radiator or a hose.
If the liquid exits at the radiator cap, when the engine cools down, the system will be low on fluid, and will create a vacuum.
If you had a working coolant tank, the vacuum would draw the coolant back into the radiator by suction.
If you cap the overflow off, you will leave the radiator low on coolant. At that rate, when it gets hot the next time, it can overheat, and if worse comes to worse, you can blow a head gasket.
God bless your efforts.

Loosiantng coolant from system cant see any leeks

What I'm afraid of is that you've blown a head gasket.... cracked a head... or maybe even cracked your block. This results in too much pressure building up in your cooling system and blowing out your coolant. First of all,though, let's look at the simple things first. Are the electric radiator cooling fan (fans) working?? When they don't work, it usually results in everything running okay as long as the car is kept moving, but overheats when car is sitting still. Check this out.. This is a fairly frequent problem. Also, if you've had an over-heat situation because of a fan not working, you could now also have a cracked head or block problem, caused by the excessive engine heat. I'm not familiar with the vehicle you drive, so I don't know if the cap you said you changed on the reservoir is a "pressure cap", or not. If it's not, then you would have a pressure cap on the top of the radiator that may be faulty... (Note: Don't remove a pressure cap while engine is still hot.) After that, check and see if there might be a build up of bugs at the front of your radiator that might restrict air-flow. Good luck...

My car is rumming hot and the antifreeze is leaking I'm thinking it's my water pump

It could be the water pump , or something else , like a faulty thermostat. Where is the coolant leaking from ? If it is leaking from the water pump , then yes , your pump might be toast.
If the thermostat is no good , the engine will warm up to normal temp , and then overheat quite quickly. As it overheats and the coolant expands and boils , it could back up into the overflow reservoir and leak out onto the ground. You need to get someone to diagnose the problem ASAP , running your engine in an overheat condition could very quickly blow your head gasket and/or warp a cylinder head. If you can , please post a bit more info. Does it run but at a higher than normal temp. Does it only overheat when stopped in traffic etc.
Could be water pump , or thermostat , or plugged up radiator , or nonfunctioning cooling fans.

Changed thermostat and added coolant but 1997

could be waterpump?
i was going to say rad fan,but if so heater would be hot.
lack of coolant will make heater core to blow cold,if engine heats up with full coolant,usually means poor or no circulation.
water pump?
run engine with full coolant,at operating temp.with rad cap off and look in rad cap hole and see if there is movement of water inside rad.
[rad fan will not come on if water is not circulating through rad water pump?]

My car overheats and blows steam from reservoir

Check your radiator pressure cap see if theres too much pressure in it. If not that which I think it is, your thermostat may be stuck closed.

Ford Taurus 1996, coolant comes out throughout the cap every time when car stops

You will overheat the engine if losing coolant.Firstly replace the cap with a new one,Is the engine temperature normal when you stop ? If its over temperature it will still blow out coolant. Check the radiator for blockage of the tubes & ensure the fan belts and water pump are in good order. Worst case is a blown head gasket can test for combustion gases in the coolant
