Default '03 radiator problems

Howdy,

So my pathfinder started overheating the other day, took into the local nissan dealer to get it checked out. Did a pressure test and coolant began "spraying" out of several spots. Nissan recommends radiator and hoses. Cost quote was approx. $900 I think I'll get a second quote elsewhere! Any suggestions?

I had to coolant system flushed and refilled about 3 months ago, should they have been able to detect this?

Thanks

My suggestion would be to remove the upper and lower rad hoses and use garden hose to run water through the rad top to bottom. Should be good flow if not have it tested at a rad shop. Possible rad blocked. Seen this 2 times before.
