Is it possible to have a defect temp. sender with a resistance that causes..

..irregular idling? Got a Laguna that has problems in the summer but not in the winter.
The temperatur gauge inside the car i function correct, but still thinking that a small defect may cause a problemt to the air intake making the TPS to detect a fault. Is this possible? anyone..

The engine may have two coolant sensors - one for the temp gauge and one for the ECU . Have a close search to see.
Also check their electrical connections as they are prone to corrosion.

As Tigz stated. The temperature sender ( Ecu one) ony my V6 was duff and it caused erratic idling, stalling, name it, that little sensor caused it

It's worth swapping it over as it's a five minute job and will cost you peanuts
