Radiator problem

Do you think 341 dollars is a lot for a radiator and install?

No. labor rate for R&R radiator is 1.8 hr. for manual transmission, add .2 for automatic. Labor around here is around $85 an hour (that's what I charge) so for a manual trans. radiator R&R your looking at $153 labor. If my cost on the radiator is say $150, I'll charge about $230 for it (list price).. Add anti-freeze/ coolant @ $18 a gallon..

Sounds about right. Make sure price includes a flush of the lines/core before they install the new one. Don't want any debris flowing into the new radiator.

About the only oil leak that could stem from a radiator replacement is if you have an automatic transmission and there's a leak at one of the cooler lines at the bottom of the radiator.
