Depends on shop rate. But looking at about 4 hours labor plus parts. So I would guess around $300 to $500. I'm guessing you have the 4 cylinder. So it could be more as it is old and parts break removing them. Like the rusty water jacket that runs under the engine.
well you have a problem in that gravity law seems to have been repealed in your driveway. since it is not working anyway drain the radiator, leave the bottom hose off tip the top hose up and pour water in very rapidly. i think you are going to find that there is a major blockage in the radiator.
One of two things. if it is not leaking either it is the heater core or the thermostat. if it is the thermostat you will most likely have no hot air when you turn on the heat. if it is the heater core you MAY smell antifreeze inside your car when you have the heat on.
You will need to Change your Thermostat. A bad Thermostat will cause the Overheat Problem as Stated above. Also, Check you Coolant Level, and see if the Water Pump is Pumping Water through the Radiator. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!
If it overheated without being low on coolant the first time you may have a themostat sticking. But I would start with a check of all the hoses for cracks or loose clamps. Also check leakage at the front of the motor from the water pump. It's hidden behind the a/c compressor but you should see splash marks on the hood if it's leaking there. For good info on how to fix it yourself try www.saturnfans.com. There are a lot of good tech tip articles for the S series cars. I lost a water pump pulley at about 90,000 overheated five times getting home. The car now has 230,000 on it and still going strong.
