Arrow Water bubbling out of coolant reservoir when turning car off

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser and this is a pretty recent issue that has started. While driving, my car does fine but as soon as I turn the car off, water will bubble out of the coolant reservoir. I have replaced the thermostat and radiator cap but the problem is still persisting. The car still runs very smoothly, no milky oil or white smoke coming out of the exhaust and it is not running hot. I can't figure out what to do and how to get this problem to stop. Any suggestions?

Do a coolant pressure test to check for leaks. If you don't find any leaks, test coolant for exhaust gasses.

Check the hose from the radiator cap to the overflow coolant tank. Make sure you physically check it for cracks and leaking at the fittings.
