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

Does the 1993 nissan sentra need its thermostat


Running an engine without a thermostat will allow it to run too cold. This will cause oil problems and fuel efficiency problems. The computer will make adjustments for a cold engine which will affect idle speed, timing, and pollution controls. You may have a plugged radiator or a water pump not moving enough water or a bad thermostat. The cost of a thermostat is much less than the damage you will cause running without one. If the radiator is plugged. running without a thermostat will not solve the over heating condition.

I live in Jamaica (no winter) can I remove the thermostat on my jeep liberty, 2005


Yeah it can safely run without a thermostat, but it will probably have a check engine light on later for code P018--engine temp too cold for too long. The engine will perform better with the thermostat and will get better fuel economy with the thermostat in place.

Can i take my thermostat out without harming the engine


yes, as long as the car is not running, it will be fine to take the thermostat out. just remember which way the thermostat came out so you will put the new one in properly, otherwise it can make your engine overheat.

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

SATURN OVER HEATING


Make sure you keep the thermostat in there, regardless of how it runs without it - it's a vital part of the car's cooling system and you're bound to run into trouble without it.
