Im guessing you were just over heating? Why engine mount?

If it was just over heating...guessing a collapsed fin or somthing..
Radiator...$150 max...reuse hoses, no need for mounts just put it in and fill it up with water and drive home at least...thermostat is two bolts and gasket...

hey dude your in luck! i work at aamco and this is the price id quote that job here in oregon
straight off of the alldata site. parts cost might be a little off.

our labor rate is $81.00

LABOR
RADIATOR 1.8
THERMOSTAT 1.1
REPLACE MOUNT x2 .8 = 1.6

Total labor 4.5 @ $81= <B>364.55</B>

PARTS COST
FOR THE TWO MOUNTS ARE $72.00 AND $54.00 = $126.00
RADIATOR $150-200
THERMOSTAT $10.00
1 GALLON TOYOTA RED ANTIFREEZE $20.00

Total parts cost = <b>356.00</b>

we would have probably asked for 540 ish. THIS IS JUST AN ESTIMATE!
