I'll explain later but...
Is 700 bones a resonable price for a new radiator, 2 transmission flushes and 3 radiator flushes???
2007 Chevy Z71 150k miles

Sorry for the punctuation just a tired SaltyCajun
I'll tell u boys the story when I can get to a PC.

Radiator is around 150-200 for aftermarket,transmisson flush is 70-100 bucks. Don't see the need to flush the radiator if your changing it....

agree w montauk

Sounds like you had a leaking trans cooler inside the radiator.

CajunSaint 09-30-2011 09:30 PM

Thanks guys!
One of the tranny coils in the radiator busted and I had trans fluid in the radiator and water in the transmission???
Looked like my truck thru up pepto bismol s/p

sounds about right, most mechanics have a $75 labor charge/hour plus thats a lot of atf and coolant.

Yeah that can be expensive

Man that makes me feel better!!
I was stranded!!

Most are at $80+/hr now. $700 is pretty reasonable.

I would have been ready for a cool $1k for a new radiator and all of the flushes. Did they have to change the filter in the tranny also? I think that is about right, but I will check w/ my paw-n-law since he owns a shop and is the lead on transmissions.

I paid $700 to replace my radiator 3 months ago.

I had the same problem on one of my trucks a few years ago, in less than 2 months my transmission gave out which costed me $2500 to fix. I traded it in on a new one.

Thanks guys,
I was stuck in Clarksville Texas at a ( how should I put it abdullah was at the desk)
The good part was the chevy dealer was 2 miles away.
The bad part the rental car place was 88 miles OUT of my way. Did talk to the owner of the chevy dealership and he said the deer around the area are BIG!! He has 10k acres showed me some pix and got me pumped!
I can't draw a bow yet but I can hunt with a xbow during the archery season this year I'll be there this weekend!!!!!

The only problem is I'll miss the UL/Troy game... I know my SaltyCajun brothers will keep me posted????
