Since part 52080154AC fits the 3.7,5.7 and 6.1 as well, the pressure rating is well within that for the 3.0 and as I said the dimensions and gland nuts match my original it will obviously fit.
FYI the hose goes from the hydraulic engine cooling fan (HEC bdalameda) to the power steering pump
I get part numbers from chryslerfactoryparts although sometime it is hard to get the diesel variant up as it by default only lists the American petrol engines
p.s. part 52089329AD is also 3 times the cost of 52080154AC
Ahhhh, I thought it was a typo, I forgot that some of the Commanders have an hydraulic engine cooling fan powered by the power steering pump. That was what you're talking about.
And I should have picked up that you were outside the U.S., since you have a diesel. Which makes me even more suspicious that the smaller Jeep markets overseas would have less replacement parts options. So it would make sense you can only get a part that fits multiple vehicles and NOT a specific part.
If someone at a parts counter is insisting the part number doesn't fit, they may just be misinterpreting what the part system is telling them, it may be telling them it isn't available, they have to use the other part number that fits and works fine, but he interprets that as the available part number being the only one that fits.
Yea, the U.S. has such high emission standards its much harder to offer Diesel options in a lot of the vehicles, so it often is only offered on exports. Europe (If that is where you're from) is raising their levels as well, well both continue to raise the bar on emission standards, so we go back and forth with getting diesel versions while the other can't get them.
BTW, make sure to use the specific PS fluid recommended in the Owner's Manual, I believe MS-10838 (check, that is from memory). Its a hybrid hydraulic/PS fluid, specifically because you have a hydraulic powered fan. And that fan is extremely expensive to replace. Chrysler had a lot of problems with a convertible years ago, that used hydraulic motors to lift/lower the convertible roof powered by the PS pump, because the PS fluid used in the system couldn't handle the stress, that is why they came up with this fluid. After replacing the hose, if you use any old PS fluid to top off the system, it might create problems with the high stress of that hydraulic powered fan.
