If you take the thermostat out the engine will never get up to full operating temp. You will burn more gas to keep the car running. You will also have no heat if you live in a cool climate. The chances of the car overheating due to the thermostat are slim to rare. It does happen. There will be some warning signs before your vehicle overheats to the point of serious damage. One the temp gauge will start to rise above the normal mark. Periodically checking your gauges while you drive should be a normal practice. If there is another cooling system failure you will start to notice drips, a sweet smell from the engine compartment, and if it gets bad enough steam from the engine compartment. The truth is the t stat could and does stick on many vehicles a lot of times. When taken care of immediately there are no ill effects. Your better of replacing the stat with a good qulity stat and staying aware of what your vehicle is telling. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

My car hit a pole really hard and it can't start, how can I start it? Someone told me there is a switch that that allows the gas flow to the engine which cut off when the car hit the pole, where is it?

No switch. FORD has those Inertia Switches and I dont know why everyone thinks their car has one? I would suggest having a repair shop look at it, guessing is expensive.

2000 Honda (Isuzu Rodeo) Check Engine Light ? 4 Codes, Misfire/Throttle/EVAP ?

Hi Jack,

I am not an expert and I don't have the codes in front of me with the meaning but I can offer some advice and hopefully it will solve your problem. First keep the print out of the codes and take it/them with you. Have someone check the oxygen sensor. It's possible that all of the codes you are getting lead up to the computer (electrical issue). I sure hope this helps. Good luck and let me know how things turn out.
