Just to make sure, he said the radiator and not the condenser, which looks like a radiator and is in front of the radiator?
While not common it is possible for a hole in the radiator to affect the cooling of the ac. With the radiator and the condenser being in the same area with one in front of the other, if the radiator is getting hot due to the leak, then the condenser will get hot as well from the radiant heat thrown off from the radiator. This will affect the condensers ability to stay cool which is need to condense the refrigerant from gas to liquid form which will cause the ac to not cool when this occurs
Labor time is 1.9 hours, which is about $190. The radiator lists for $425, then coolant, about $30. Total should be about $645
