Many people have asked whether it is good to remove the thermostat in their cars.
For fuel economy and engine longevity concerns, the best is the have the engine's Thermostat in place. This can make the rings still be in good shape after many miles.
Where proper maintenance of using coolant solution and replacing the coolant (causing severe rust and/or scale formation) and Thermostat periodically are not followed, as in the case of many users in Nigeria, REMOVE THE THERMOSTAT to protect the engine from catastrophic failure as a result of overheat. Thermostat removal should normally be a temporary measure till you can get the cooling system clean, get quality coolant and quality Thermostat. Thermostat removal can be done for the purpose of troubleshooting too and then returned back to..
