The radiator cost at autozone is as much as $130, you should add shop time for at least 1.5 hours at ($X/hr) depends on what shop time is in your local area, then add for antifreeze (1gal). The shop may recommend changing some hoses and the thermostat, these should be your option, because if the engine is not overheating and the hoses do not leak, they should not need to be replaced. Hope this helps

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Clutch replacement

Clutch life depends entirely on how the clutch has been treated. If it hasn't been driven abusively, it could conceivably last the life of the car. To try it out, put it in top gear around 30mph and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip anywhere, it's here. If the car gains speed without the RPM shooting up, the clutch is fine and you should have no worries about her making it safely across the country.

I am considering purchasing a use 99 GMC Jimmy with about 138K miles on it. What type of life would expect to see from such a vehicle? What are some typical engine or problems might I see in near furuter....

Usally you can get up to 200,000 or more. One of my customers' got 241,000 before the transmission went out, my other customer has a 1998 Blazer with 168,000 runs well, paid $1500. Had to replace the fuel pump $200 + labor, had to replace the catalytic converter $200 and O2 sensor $60 + labor. Did a tune up. Replaced the fuel filter $20 + labor. A fair price would be between $2000-3000 if in go over all shape.
