This is why I love my vacuum filler system. Gets all of the air out the first time, every time, AND verifies no leaks. It's worth it's weight in gold I tell ya! Saves me a ton of labor time at the shop.

I have the 4.0L

I only added 2 gallons total (1.9) I initially. I think factory capacity is like 2.5 gallons but that's if you were able to drain every last bit.
Some vehicles will pass a pressure check, but can still have a minor seepage during operation, where pressures fluctuate constantly.

This is the system that I have. It's more commercial, but there are others.

The one I have is not cheap, but as I mentioned, there are several different versions available.

Yep. Mine held pressure but had real minor seepage. Dye test would probably more accurate.
