Yes, it will keep the ecm (computer) in a loop. Becuase it doesnt ever reach its nominal running temperature. Which affects all kinds of drive train parameters. Probabl even less miles to Gallon of fuel

The thermostat is designed to open and close to allow the flow of heated cooling fluid from the engine to the fan for cooling by the fan(s).
If it is stuck open the water continually circulates and takes longer to get hot. If the heater air flow is working properly, then the problem is either the heater core or a stuck open thermostat.

there could be an air lock in the system, pluged heator core, a bad thermostate or control modual. try bleeding the air out through the bleeder screew if there is no heat after that have the control modual tested if its okay try having the cooling system flushed then if it still doesnt heat intall new termostate

The drain is located on the passenger side of the radiator at the bottom. Turn it counterclockwise to open. It is plastic so be careful if you decide to use tools to turn.

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
