Check/Test the thermostat could be sticking

A mechanic removed my thermostart claiming that vehicles in East Africa esp Kenya dont need them coz it hot here unlike Europe or anywhere else.

Check and Test the coolant temperature sensor could be throwing you off-could be out of calibration

Ave opened the hood while engind warming a check engine light came on the darshboard and upon checking the sensor conections, found a disconnected wire on one, next to a horse pipe which comes from the lower part of the radiator to the upper part of the engine. After reconnecting it my car has started well without a misfire, check engine light gone, & moved smoothly. Could that have been the root of da entire problem?
