Angry cooling system

I am totally baffled. I am a single woman with no money. I have the problem with the cooling system and I can't afford to drop my 89 Plymouth voyager off at some shop. I replaced the thermostat and it was bled I even replaced the radiator cap. And still have the coolant boiling into the reservoir. It doesn't go back into the radiator. I have to add more which boils out again. I have had shade tree mechanics check it for me and try to repair it with no luck there is no discoloration in the oil but I am beginning to think there is a head gasket gone. Can anyone think of anything else ? I am living on a small income and I am almost 60 I need advice. Please HELP !!

Does the radiator fan work?Is the front of the radiator clear of debris?How long does it take for it to begin to boil out?

How long since the radiator cap was checked and or replaced?
It could be as simple as a bad cap.

think it is time to have the system pressure checked.

it would sure help US to know what engine you have.

if you let it boil over too many times, then you will really have no money, as you will crack some expensive engine parts, where as right now it might only be a bad gasket.

does the radiator fan come on before the coolant boils out?
