Coolant tank replacement?

(1999 Pontiac Grand Am)
in New London, CT on July 25, 2009
My pontiac is leaking coolant at a rapid rate and I'm not sure whether its a hose or the coolant tank. First, how do I check that on my own and second, if it needs to be replaced, can you give me an estimate at what that should cost?

Coolant leaks are diagnosed by pressurizing the cooling system and then looking to see where the leak is. You must visually determine what is leaking. The cost to replace the coolant tank should not be more that 1 hour labor plus the cost of the part and coolant.

1 Hour labor is excessive. You can replace the coolant tank and the connecting hose yourself in about 15 minutes.
