Depends On What You Are Asking; When You Say Pressure Build Up, Is This In The Cooling System If It Is It Is Normal To Have A Pretty Good Amount Of Pressure. Reason You Have a Closed Cooling System. I Recomment You Replace The Radiator Cap First It Could Be Stuck. Then The Thermostat Might Have A Bit To Do With This. By Not Allowing The Water To Circulate Properly ( as it should open at near 195 degrees on most Ford products ) But your car would get a bit hotter than normal. Try The Cap First Then Thermostat.
