$965 later, everything is fixed with more and less than bargained. I specified Fel-Pro gaskets and I got it (not sure what gaskets were used for oil pan or valve covers). The oil pan drain needed to get fixed as well (apparently was leaking).
In addition to the lower radiator hose, they replaced the upper too (whatever, no big deal). [EDIT: I requested Goodyear and got Carquest - left stickers on the hoses.] What really upsets me, I specified non-dex (prestone) and they claim they couldn't get it from any of the local parts places, so they ended up putting back in Dex-Cool.
Am I screwed!?! Should I demand they change out the fluids? It'* a ma / pa shop and the owner gave me a lifetime warranty on the gaskets.
Suddenly my *** hurts from getting bent over.
