I still can't understand what there is that would keep the coolant system under pressure as it cools off. How are you determining that? If it just feels weird when you pull the cap off, it may be that the cap relief vent that lets air into the system as it cools off and prevents a vacuum from forming is plugged. It may actually be under vacuum instead of pressure, which would indicate a plugged vent and relatively tight system.
Unless you're truly out in the sticks, you should be able to find something to jury-rig and put pressure on the coolant system.
