Dayco Molded Radiator and By-Pass Hoses are designed to provide the high strength and resistance to oil, mud, salt, road debris, ozone, coolants, and temperature variations required for a superior performance replacement hose.

Product Features:
  • Made with synthetic EPDM rubber compounds that provide resistance to deterioration from ozone, coolants, and temperature variations of -40°F (-40°C) to +257°F (+125°C)
  • The inner base tube is reinforced with knitted rayon for maximum strength and burst resistance for the life of the hose
  • Meets SAE J20R4, Class D-1 requirements for improved service hose
  • Meets Type EC electro-chemical requirements as specified in SAE J1684; which eliminates premature deterioration of the inner tube caused by the build up of static electric charges

      Perfect replacement for the original. Only difficulty is removing the factory clamps but that is to be expected.

        This hose was little long for my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. So I trimmed off an inch on the motot side of the hose. It worked great.

        Comments about Dayco Curved Radiator Hose:

        Fit perfectly as advertised so there really isn't much to say. The only issue that I had was that there were two holes in the walls of the hose near one end from a plastic filament that may have held an inventory tag. The holes were very close to the end (1/4-3/8") and probably would have created no issue as this part of the hose would be sufficiently lapped over the outlet tubing. Just out of GP however, I removed this small section with a razor knife prior to installation. Hose was nicely pliable and easy to install.

        I had help in the store to get the part numbers to order on line, and the top hose was wrong. I took it to the store for an exchange to match the one I removed.

          Its a well constructed hose, took minutes to install - recommend you get new hose clamps and replace the thermostat at the same time.
