Default Coolant pressure question

So on my 13 wrx I took my turbo coolant tank cap off and radiator cap at the same time and coolant began to flow out of radiator cap I put the cap back on the turbo side the flow stops, take it off it starts again.

Why? Is it pressurized? Air bubble?

Magic.

Or, it could be that one cap is higher than the other.

Lol go do it and see if yours starts to slowly leak over the radiator side filler neck. Make sure I'm not alone ha.

No, I'm not going to do it. I know it will happen - it's called physics.

So then it is normal, because its pressurized.
On my AP my crushing coolant temp is 179-181 idle temps get to 202 then fans kick on and back to 185-188 at Long idles, coolant temp never goes above middle.

Is there a reason why you needed to make 2 threads today about random, silly things?

Yes, the coolant system of nearly every car is pressurized. Now fill out your profile, and stop trying to break your brand new car.

Wait, what?

Is the car running? If so, how does the water pump work?

If not, how does gravity work?
