no... it will cause the engine to run rich and burn / collapse the catalytic conv. ...the car won't pass smog test if you are in a regulated state. be sure to replace it as soon as possible.

Exactly, and you need a 195°F thermostat in there. From a cold start the engine must reach operating temperature within a certain time limit. If not the service engine soon or check engine light will come on and a trouble code will set. HTH. -Jim
