Good question. In my experience, I believe you have a water pump issue. Another issue could be the thermostat but generally speaking the thermostat will cause the engine to over heat. The water pump could be going bad though which is causing it to boil over sometimes.
Listen for noises under your hood, usually when a water pump is going bad it will squeak a bit. If you aren’t quite sure, have the coolant system flushed to ensure there is no rust or debris clogging your system.
