My car is at the shop right now. I think the price to repairnl my broken radiator is quite high and would like to have a second opinion. I don't drive as much as in the past-maybe 10,000 mi per year. I did blow a head gasket years ago-this same mechanic fixed it. I need work done on theleft front window. I cant rise it back up. Because of vandalism in this area, the car needs cosmetic work.
2500 miles after a head gasket replacement the radiator developed a significant leak
