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

Is it ok to run my 04 grand prix without the thermostat

It is not the best but can be done.
Don't remove the whole thermostat only the center part and fit the frame back in the housing.
If you remove the whole thermostat you can end up with cavitation problems and this can cause hot spots in the engine.

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.

My Daughter 1998 ford fiesta zetec temperture guage stayed at the very bottom of the guage all and only raised late this afternoon, i've told her that it was because she had ony driven for a short time and...

Sounds like the thermostat is failing.

Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (a) sticking open (b) stick closed

Your seems to be sticking open - and so the engine warms up VERY slowly,
but still throws a little heat out the vents - less heat over time so that
your daughter didn't even notice the gradual decrease over time.

If you can replace the thermostat on your own, your cost may be less than $5.
To get a new thermostat (always buy parts on your own - the garage will charge a
50% surcharge on any parts they have to locate for your car), try Wal-mart first
(they sell a few thermostats for a few cars), then any auto parts place.

Replacing a thermostat in a 1998 Fiesta ZTEC engine should be the first thing
a DIY mechanic learns after figuring out how to do regular maintenance items - since
stuff like distributor cap/ distributor rotor/ thermostat are actually regular maintanance
items - destined to have a limited life span, like any moving part.

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.

How do i fit a thermostat for a 1998 ford fiesta

Purchase new thermostat. Follow the top radiator hose to the engine and remove the bolts that secure the housing at the engine end of that hose, to the engine. Pay careful attention to the way that the old thermostat fits, pop it out and put the new one in the same way.
