Can a Car Run without a Thermostat?

Answer

A car can run without a thermostat. A thermostat in your vehicle is to maintain a temperature of about 90 degrees. Without a thermostat you engine may never heat up, so you wont have any heat from the heater core. It might affect your mpg and the performance might suffer, but your engine will be fine.
