    That is actually fairly normal. How many PSI was it pressurized to and how long did you leave it pressurized?

    dont know, mechanic did it, but from the way it sounded when he released it, pretty high.

    we both looked it over for probably 5 minutes and couldn't find anything

    Well if it passed a pressure check you should be ok. Glad you did that, now your flush would be a good thing.

    And yes, like Jeff said, the coolant level will change when you rev the engine.
