Depends what's leaking now.

Just because you didn't replace something won't cause other parts to fail. But when removing and installing the coolant hoses from/onto plastic parts will stress that piece of old plastic. So it is possible to have a crack shortly after the overhaul but not months later.

Expansion tank failure is very common even if it was recently replaced. Search this site for the best source of exp tank.
