    Of course it will it's under pressure, if you have water coming out of the exhaust and it's losing water start worrying.

    The reason is boils when you open it is due to the fact that a sealed water system raises the boiling point, which is why they do it on all the cars.. So when your removing the cap your lowering the boiling point back to normal and thus it starts to instantly boil and try and scald you
