    Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Flex Radiator Hose:

    It shows this hose as an exact fit, but it is not. There are too many special bends on the OEM hose that this hose will not do. I returned the hose and bought the Dayco curved hose (Part No C71795) which is an exact fit-formed hose that matches the OEM hose. Use this hose only for a temporary fix until you can purchase the Dayco hose.

        Advance specs this hose as a replacement for the upper radiator hose on my 2001 Nissan Altima. It does fit the nipples on the block and radiator BUT the bends are just too tight and the hose will kink off. Save your time and money and get the one that is made for it.

              • Q:

                the hose is straight, but said to be flexible, Does the hose curve like an "S" and fit just like the replacement hose for a '95 Dodge Neon.
