Not a Problem Just a Question

Dumped all the coolant flushed system and put the latest recommended ford anti freeze (non Silica based) green, also changed all the filters etc.
Ran the truck up hot for about a hour, then took it round the block, shut it down and left it for a fortnight. Whent back to it last week end and whent to take the expansion bottle cap off to check fluid level, and there was still pressure in the system is this normal......

I have seen some systems hold a little pressure up to 48 hrs. Just a little chuff but ya new there was still pressure there. Kinda rare for that long but not impossible.
