    Default Water is reducing in the reservoir bottle of vitz 2002

    Dear all
    I have replaced gaskit in my vitz 2002 due to heating & water leakage in the radiator.now when i replaced gas kit along with kabli (almost new) radiator as well but i realized that water level is being reduced by almost 2 inch in the reservoir bottle after 70 km as i checked.also when i opened radiator cap after 6km run in the morning there was pressure in the radiator.however my car is not indicating over heat issue.
    Somebody plz give me expert opinion is situation normal or some issue.....?

    You would need service manual of vitz of correct torque figures and than you need to find a mechanic with torque wrench (a torque wrench will ensure correct tightening of bolts)
