petcock replacement on 2000 Hyundai Sonata

what is the average cost to repair petcock

Asked by for the 2000 Hyundai Sonata
Is it the petcock in the radiator? If it is a plastic screw type I normally heat a screw driver with a propane torch and stick it firmly into the broken petcock. The screw driver melts the plastic and as it cools down in a few seconds the plastic solidifies and you can just turn the screw driver and remove the broken off pet cock. Could take a 20 minutes to half hour, or worse case the radiator could need to be removed. I suspect you will be charged between half an hour to one hour unless it is suggested to drain/flush the cooling system.
