hehe, I guess so.  In general, the law you stated would be the "while
you're in there" law - as applied to cooling systems it is more
important, since repairing the leaky item will raise system pressure
again and kablooey! (technical term) the next weakest one starts to
leak.  You can spend a year on and off breathing and cleaning up
"surplus" coolant or do it all at once.
