All car cooling systems have at least 10lb pressure, check with your manufacturer on your car's radiator pressure cap or local parts supplier. If pressure is alot more then I would suspect a leaking head gasket.
Easiest test for the obvious leaking head gasket is when the engineis cold / remove the radiator cap and fill right to the top with water and crank / start engine. If you see a mini "guyser" of water come out then head (S) need to come off.
You haven't mentioned whether its actually losing . using water??

There is a problem with the hole getting clogged right by where the engine connection is, use a piece of wire to unclog the orifice and reinstall the line. You should be OK after that.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Start by putting Lucas fuel stabilizer ,this will remove water in the tank and stabilize bad gas. It also cleans injectors some what. If this doesn't work move on to your fuel pressure regulator and make sure u have good injectors. Also replace fuel filter, easy to do with the purchase of a five dollar tool at any parts store.

Buy a block tester. It hooks up to your radiator and lets u know if exhaust gasses are mixing with your coolant wich would mean u have a (blown head). Do this before you spend anymore money.
