Coolant housing leak

I was told I have a coolant housing leak in my 2012 Kia Sorrento. I was $250 for the part and $315 for the labor. Does this sound reasonable?

Testimonial: "the quote is from the dealership. they only told me it is the coolant housing. I would believe that means the reservoir."

How do I reset my anti theft on my 2012 Kia Sorrento I can not start my car and alarm goes off when I try to do anything!.

1. Disconnect Negative Battery Terminal.
2. Turn Ignition key to RUN(where it is normally, when driving).

Should be OK, now, but if not-
1. Disconnect Both battery terminals. Hold them together for 60-90 seconds (drains memory current).
2. Turn key to RUN.
3. Reconnect Battery.
If there is still a problem, it needs professional repair.

Can the Oil Pressure Switch on a Kia Sorrento cause an oil leak?

Do you mean filler cap or the oil filter? An improperly seated O-ring on an oil filter is a common source of oil leaks, but these leaks are usually major and noticeable as soon as the engine is started. An oil pressure switch can also be a source of leaks, but a much slower leak. A leak from an oil filler cap would be slower still.
