Not from me! My local toy dealer quoted me that for replacing my rad on a 98
3.4 tacoma, but then they also charge $180 for a battery. I have 135k on it
so figured I'de better do the timing belt and water pump as well......over
$1500. from them, $1300 from another local dealer. But there's also good
news, found a shop 30 miles away from word to mouth, the guy worked as a toy
mechanic for 20 years, then started his own shop. Bottom line,
radiator
anti freeze
timing belt
water pump
labor
$568.! It pays to shop

Being a newbie to this group and computers in general I'd like to know
what "lol" means. I've seen it used many times and I don't know and can't
figure out what it means.
Please inform me.
Thanks
jm

Jack,
Another "FYI", this ng doesn't seem to mind top-posting (when you post your
answer above the previous posts) but in several others I participate in
you'll get flamed big-time for that. It's an old netiquette thing and more
people are straying away from it. Not sure why, doesn't seem to make much
difference either way.
HTH, davidj92
