I did this probably a half dozen times before she finally had enough. Always afraid of over filling, I added just enough each time. Again, maybe you'll get it right the first time, but I think it wise to carry some extra coolant wherever you go for a week or so. If you need it you'll have it and if you don't -- no harm done.

That is pretty normal when changing coolant. Seems these systems need to be replenished a few times after the change.

And, yes, there is NO lifetime anything when it comes to fluids.
