Default Worth it?

Fuel System Flush $74.99
Tranny Flush $119.99
Rad Flush $69.99

Total of $304 with tax, and to my recollection my mother since she got the regal has never had any of these done. ( shes had it for 4 years )

I'd do it definitely. But space it out if it would be easier like Jim suggested.

I'm going to get my tranny flushed soon (hopefully for less than $119)

Is a rad flush not an easy job?

Do the rad yourself. It'* easy. That trans flush is worth it, unless that'* US dollars. Should be about $80US. Fuel system? I'd pass on that one. Use an over the counter injector cleaner for 2 consecutive tanks, then change the filter.

For 70 bucks, they best be flushing more than the radiator. That should be a full cooling system flush.
