Default Cost to change thermostat and do a coolant flush?

I have a 94 civic that keeps overheating and I'm assuming that a radiator flush along with replacing the thermostat should fix the problem but don't know what a fair price is if I bring it to shop. Please let me know what you think a fair price is, thanks in advance.

it can also be a warn out fan... but the the thermostat is cheaper... there like 15 at autozone... so just buy a new thermo and if it still heats up then maybe its the fan

$20 if you do it yourself. Say $75-90 at a shop if they charge $45/hr.

true to both, however no thermostat for a honda is 15 bucks. try like 3.99
get the thermostat, the gasket, prestone radiator flush and some 50/50 coolant and do it yourself for much less than a shop.
