You might be better off just replacing the radiator just due to the age of it at this time. I had a Tahoe that the plastic tank started leaking, took it out and went to a radiator shop to have it fixed, he pulled off the tank and found that it was partially plugged, so by the time he rodded it out and replaced the tank seals I could have purchased a new radiator.

the radiator guy told me it would be about $150 for him to fix it if I pull radiator. He said a new one is about 250-300. that seems high to me. do you agree?

Yeah seems high, try NAPA or CarQuest.

Rock auto has them priced from 103-335. I think the ac delco was about 260, so his price wasnt bad if it was for ac delco or oem type. You can certainly get by cheaper , up to you.

They are way cheaper than 250-300. More like 150ish
