Is is safe to drive the car without the thermostat? I live in AZ.

I have a 1997 Chrysler LHS. It continues to overheat. I have replaced the thermostat and the cap. There are no obvious water leaks. If I take the thermostat out, it does not overheat.

Do you
have the same problem?

Sometime it can cause it to overheat because there is too much water flow. If it overheats, flush the radiator and see if that helps. It may be partially plugged. Also, make sure you are installing the t-stat in the right direction.
