It should have a thermostat. That's what i would check first. Sound like it's running hotter than it is supposed too and pushing it out of the overflow.

there are a few things to check
-you are sure that it was not just over filled
-all hoses and tank itself are free of leaks and cracks
-check rad cap if it has become weak it will let antifreeze escape (borrow a buddys cap see if it helps)
-thermostat could also be sticking (change thermostat)
-when idleing is there excesive bubbleing or foaming in the overflow tank (possible head gasket leak)
