[DML] Re: Coolant system pressure check and vacuum routing.

You really have to have coolant in the system to pressure test. This
way you can see the leaks. Some leaks may be so small as not to leak
coolant but will easily leak air. All it may take is tightening up
some hose clamps. As for the vacuum tee I think you mean the side of
the tee which is connected to a fitting on the front right side of the
intake manifold and is the vacuum source for the cannister and the
power brakes. Your coolant leak can also be where the tester connects
to the tank. Very common on a beat up tester.
