The Jeep has been together and running for a couple months now. I have put on about 2000kms with the tdi motor. I have a couple questions:


1. My rad has a overflow/siphon hose, can I tee this into the bleed line on the VW coolant bowl? Or should I run a separate reservoir bottle?

2. Is there any benefit the connecting the VSS sensor to the Jeep transmission.
Maybe there is some idle/vehicle speed compensation feature I am not using?

If your overflow hose comes out of the radiator above the pressure relief of the cap, I would think you would put that to a separate (atmospheric) bottle. The VW bowl is pressurized.

The engine software does us the VSS in some of its tuning (unless your tuner removed it). It is also required for cruise control.
