no picture as needed to put it back together asap as I need the car to get about and didn't have time to look on the internet but I'm pretty sure thermostat should of been sitting between housing and the engine of where it connects to but it doesn't overheat always sits below halfway line on temp gauge


but long as it works with heating etc I don't see point putting one in if it works fine as it is


makes me wonder if last owner had overheat issue and took it out

When winter comes, it will take a very long time before the coolant to reach normal operating temperature
And you will suffer from the cold for a longer period of time.
The thermostat allows the engine to warm up faster.
And when the engine reaches operating temperature, it opens to allow for coolant to flow

But, you could wait for winter when it is harder to put in a thermostat ... lol

No thermostat or stuck open thermo will usually cause a CEL.

Yeah wasn't thinking about that, better pull that housing open again and put a thermostat in

Bad advice. The engine will run too cold, pollute and get lousey gas mileage plus you'll freeze your butt off in the winter. It is not supposed to run as cold as possible. Engine temp is one of the things that the computer bases engine settings on

Absolutely. Controlled temp is part of the computer program. It affects, pollution, performance, and gas mileage. Some fool must have had a bad stuck closed stat and took the cheap and dirty way out. If it left the factory that way, somebody really screwed up Are you looking in the right housing? It is the larger one. Mine has three bolts and the other radiator hose elbow only has two.
