Yes it can. A faulty thermostat can cause overheating which will cause coolant to be pushed out of the system.
The coolant sensor moniters the coolant temperature. A faulty thermostat could cause the engine to run cool.
There is an engine temperature sensor that operates the cooling fan.
A faulty thermostat in a 2001 BMW 325CI can cause a coolant leak. The coolant may be leaking out a crack in the thermostat or through a warped edge. In some cases the problem may be just a bad gasket and not actually a problem with the thermostat at all.
IF YOUR CAR IS HEATING UP(OVERHEATING) AND YOU STILL DRIVING IT, A FAULTY THERMOSTAT IS THE LEAST OF YOUR PROBLEM.

The most common cause of overheating is a thermostat stuck in the closed position. Other causes of overheating could be a clogged radiator, faulty water pump, a faulty radiator fan relay, a faulty radiator fan motor, no coolant or low coolant level.
