Welcome to! My name is DriveFast71(Ron) and I will do my best to answer all of your questions completely and accurately.


Is it a VTEC engine (usually in the EX model)?


Is it standard or automatic transmission?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.

I don't know the engine type, but it's the DX model, automatic transmission.


Expert:  Ron Z. replied 6 years ago.

That will do. The DX didn't offer the VTEC.


The radiator sells for around $314 and the labor time guide calls for 1.7 hours to complete the job (expect to pay for 2hours, as most shops round up to the nearest hour). Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the botXXXXX XXXXXne. In this economy, and for this type of job, a "fair" rate is around $75-$95/hr. You will also need to add the cost of antifreeze (around $20) plus your States tax rate on parts.
