The question is whether it is normal pressure or abnormal pressure. With the engine cool, remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Pinch closed the hose to the reservoir and place the palm of your hand over the radiator neck where the cap came off. If you feel steadily rising pressure within 5 seconds the head is still leaking one way or another. If not, you are probably experiencing the pressurization that is necessary for the cooling system to work at its designed temperature.
