Yes, you can. You can run any vehicle without a thermostat as a short-term measure only.
Removal of the thermostat means that the engine coolant circulates through the radiator and cylinders nearest to the radiator ... those cylinders furthest away from the radiator will consequently run hotter..
Running a car without a thermostat is a short term, get you home measure. Manufacturers fit a thermostat for a good reason. Running a car without one for a prolonged period is going to cause problems
this needs a motor vehicle technician to lift vehicle and inspect the damage ,but it will not be cheap because i should imagine that the lower track control arm is damaged ,and the tyre is now running out of alignment which is caused by the above
Consequences are poorer fuel mileage and possible Check Engine Light.
I'd start by replacing the thermostat, and flushing the coolant system.
What's probably happening is the thermostat is stuck open, allowing coolant to freely flow through the engine. This lowers the internal temperatures and keeps the combustion process from fully completing (causing worse gas mileage). Start with that and see how it does.
