I have a 1997 saturn sw2 that stopped runnuing changed fuel pump wont idle error code #4 cylinder is miss fireing changed ignition module car starts runs ruff changed spark plugs & wire set

You need to make sure the cylinder is getting fuel and that it doesn't have a vacuum leak at the intake that is leaning it out and causing a misfire, if that checks ok then determine if the #4 cylinder has acceptable compression as compared to the other three, all cylinders should been within 5% of the cylinder with the highest pressure on test.

I Can Hear Fuel Pump Running Non Stop When Car Is Runnuing (1996 Mustang)

As long as your engine is running so is the pump. As long as it does not keep running when the engine is off, you are ok .

What's your question?can you run a 2.5 v6 sonata with out a thermostat

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

Run over a cavity "deep excavation" with high speed

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

Low temp.

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.
