I had a similar issue one day, my friend mechanic advised that the thermostat had siezed, he removed the thermostat, cut the spring and re installed it, I have used it now for 4 months with no issues to date. Please check with a technician, as I reside on an Island that is constant 84 degrees and the engine does not really need a thermostat.

As to update this, I have now used this car without the spring in the thermostat for nearly 2 years and without any issues, temp remains well below half way mark
