We have a 1993 cutlass sierra with less than a 100,000 miles, all of a sudden it started sputtering and shaking when driven, any suggestions what could be the issue

It could be multiple things. The easiest I would start with is the spark plugs and spark plug wires. If they are bad it will cause a misfire in the motor which would cause shaking. They are fairly cheap and easy to replace. It could also be a plugged fuel filter, a weak fuel pump, bad distributor cap, these are just a few things to check out. It's hard to tell what it is without actually being there. But here are the basic rules, no compression, no fuel, no spark, no start.

If i remove the thermostat from my 92 cutlass ciera in the summer will it keep it cool during the hot weather

No & you may not have proper control
over the fuel injection
Your living back in the 1950's
The motor will run too cool for the computer
to do it's job.
Engine coolant has to be at 205 to 210 all
year round & you have to have a thermostat
for that to happen.

Replaced fuel pump & filter. relay is working fine. car still want hold when you crank it.

My 89 Cutlass had a strange starting problem too...During cold weather she would crank, but she would not start...I could heat up the top of the engine with a hair dryer and she would start....Shop finally fixed her, replaced the COIL, the old coil was no bueno in cold weather!!!!
