No I meant the gauge on the dash board sorry for the wrong phrase but a certain mechanic was of the idea that we get rid of the thermostat because of different climatic conditions by the way iam in africa and the car came from germany

You should be able to get a cooler running thermostat and make sure that rest of the cooling system is working as it should.
