Help with Overheating problem

My 98 SH has been overheating lately. When I go to check the coolant it is always low. I found out there is no leak, but in fact the coolant is going to the reservoir tank, but is not getting sent back.

So basically when my car needs coolant its not getting it because all the coolant is in the overflow tank and not where it needs to be.

Does anyone know why this would be occurring?

Has to be leak somewhere...

When you turn the cap on the radiator after engine is a "larm" does it start to flow out?

Alright so I was trouble shooting and I found out there was no hose in my overflow tank. So I added one. Now my levels seem to be ok. I hope that was the only problem. Thanks for the response though its really appreciated.

Re: Help with Overheating problem

well, how long have you had it like that and when did this problem first start happening?
if you had the car for awhile and it just started happening, its most likely something else as well.
