The average power steering cooler retail price is probably somewhere around $150. However, there are a number of different sizes for power steering coolers, so some will cost much more and others will cost much less. Taking into account the cost of the part when trying to determine overall cost is important, but other things to consider are: Is there any diagnostic charge? Are you having any other components replaced at the same time? Are you performing a power steering fluid flush? All of these could add extra cost to the replacement of the power steering cooler.
So, what is the overall average expense of a power steering cooler replacement? Considering the current national average flat rate charge and the average cooler price, it should be somewhere around $300. It could also be as low as $150 or over $500. It is important to remember that when replacing a power steering cooler performing a power steering flush and potentially changing out any other failing or old parts is important and should always be considered.
