The engine, if the rest of the cooling system is in good order, will run too cold. This will affect fuel consumption, emissions and perhaps power delivery. While this is often done for short periods, ie to deal with a faulty 'stat, it is not advised for long periods. Best thing is to get the thermostat replaced.

Evaporation isn't directly correlated with temperature it's a combination of air temperature and air moisture content. In general, warmer air can hold more moisture, so assuming that air of a given temperature becomes warmer, it will allow condensation from your windshield to evaporate. The warmer the air is, the more moisture it will be able to hold, and ...

Electric thermometers are called thermocouples, the way they work is that they offer less resistance to electrical current as temperature goes up, i.e. as it gets hotter the voltage on the circuit goes up. Themrocouples are calibrated to give specific voltages at specific temperatures, the temperature readout is simply an indication of the voltage on the ...

Some engines (not sure if this is one) will need to be burped or have a air bubble removed for proper cooling. There are several ways of doing this. If you do not have good flow of the coolant, because of an obstruction (air bubble) in some engines they will overheat. You are having overheating, or at least localized boiling of coolant, which is causing ...

4 minutes seems to be OK during summer but may take much longer like 20-30 during winter to get to the stable operating temperature.
