I have noticed some weird noise coming from my car when I accelerate at idle, and also the temperature jauge always stays in blue side.
At first I thought it was because of the weather, because these last days it was very cold in France (about -5°C), but after taking my car to the dealer, this one told me my temperature jauge is out of order.
I wanted to know if this jauge is used by the ECU to manage the engine, and also where this jauge is located, because sometimes it moves about 1/3 to the right (it's usually in the middle on my car).
Maybe it is just not well connected.

Last thing, it will only be changed on tuesday because there wasn't any available at the dealer, so if it's a bad connexion i could avoid paying for nothing ;)

My temp gauge moved to the red limit one time and the red area lights up when your car is overheating. That happened to me one time when my coolant hose broke
