Expansion Tank

98 base
Did a static pressure test on the cooling system today. Dropped two psi in ten minutes. No sign of a leak and fluid loss may be a few ounces. Just wondering if it should hold pressure indefinitely or if there is an acceptable loss rate. I am planning on replacing the tank.
Thanks

I must agree with J F P, as in my experience, take it from me!

As I said, replacement is emminent. Looks like I've connected with a couple of absolutists.
Thanks guys
