    Hey all,

    89 4runner 4 cyl. automatic.

    Looks like I need to replace all of my coolant hoses since 2 have failed in the last 3 weeks, and unfortunately some of them are out of my abilities to self-perform. Can someone give me a reasonable price estimate/guess for what I could expect for this repair if I take it to a shop? Assuming radiator flush needs to go along with it, and probably replace the thermostat also.

    many thanks,

    Late reply sorry...I did have the dealer replace all the hoses...i didn't have the time and it was pricey for sure over 300.00...but I let them replace the stock thermostat with a Toyota...It would heat up to the red fast so I replaced it with an LCE thermostat and it works Great!!! Get the LCE thermostat for sure it's much better and has a small by pass hole that helps your engine heat up a little smoother!!!
