Not safe in engine and transmission. I would think same reason applies, I.e., too much pressure. I would remove some if it was mine.

I would recommend the same thing but I wonder if you can run the engine with replacement tank before you mount it. Run it, start and stop for various time periods until you're satisfied. Let us know...

I had a steering issue that was due to a rusted steering u-joint. The replacement in a dealer solved that issue. If you're in NJ that uses road salt, the u-joint may also be a cause.
