SOURCE: OIL IN ANTIFREEZE
if this is dexcool antifreeze and it has never been flushed after time it will gum up and turn brown if this is the case have your coolant system power flushed I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS WORK FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE YET TO SEE A 3.8 MOTOR HAVE A CRACKED BLOCK!

Check around, I'm sure that you can find someone that can do it for less money.
I don't know if the radiator was bad or not, so I can't offer advice on that.
If your mechanic charges $100.00 per hour or more, I can see where they get the quote from.
If you need more assistance, post a comment.
Where are you located?
Maybe we can help suggest a mechanic for you.

With what you describe the problem to be I would have the radiator flow checked. Sounds like it may be clogged if not the pump is probably bad. The head gasket should be o-kay due to no loss of fluid or smoke out the tailpipe. Do theses checks and you should find your problem.

SOURCE: 2 recurring problems: #1 car
lets start with the check engine light, the check engine light is part of the on-board computer system it is on because one of the many sensors on the car is out of range, any time the check engine light comes on the on-board computer system records a trouble code in its memory, if you take the car to autozone or many other auto parts chain stores they will retreve the codes for free, after you get the codes get back with me and i will look the code up and try to lead you down the path to geting this problem repaired, but with out the code any thing i have you try would be just a shot in the dark.
now the oil smell, I am going to assume this car has the 3.4L V6 there are two main oil leaks we see on these engines, the leak is most likely high up on the engine , i say this because it must be dripping on the eaxust manafod, the leak must be small and in a place that allowes the oil to puddel then when the car goes around a corrner the oil will spill out of the puddle and onto the manafold, the most coomon leak on these engines is teh lower intake manafold, it leaks at the rear lip seal and the oil will puddel on top of the transmission bell housing, so take a look at the back of the engine were the engine and transmission bolt togather, look for oil standing in the resess on to of the bell housing.
now for the stering, the pop or bang in the front end is very troubling. i think you need to have the rack and pinnion unit checked, that would be the only thing i can think of that might cause the stering to just all a sudden get out of line, and if it is the rack it could get dangerous in a hurry, dont delay have this checked TODAY, have them remove the dust boots on the ends of the rack and if there is any fluid at all in the boots replace the rack, make sure you tell the person checking the front end about what the car has done, so they can be looking for a linkage problem with the rack and stering collum.
let me know if there us any thing else you need.
