So how do you know?

Sounds like a good story.
lets just say...don't stick you finger in the PSR after running the truck to check the fluid level.

Oh and make sure you have the band clamps TIGHT. I didnt know RPG meant TIGHT. I lost about 1/4 of my fluid because the return line was snug instead of really tight. So I torqued it down along with everything else and have had no problems.

Word of advice, when a company says tighten the hell out of something, DO IT
