You can remove the thermostat, but you son't want to. That will cause the computer to think that the car has never heated up properly and make it run as if it needs to heat up. This will affect fuel economy, power, and longetivity of the engine. You will be better off fixing your cooling system wherever the problem is. DO NOT REMOVE THERMOSTAT!!!!!!!!!!! the Computer will run in Limp Home Mode forever until its replaced, really bad economy,Worse Performace,will run the cooling fan constantly.

Thermostat and radiator
If the Toyota Celica VVTI is not blowing hot air through the heater, but the engine is overheating, there could be a problem with the radiator being plugged up. Sediment sometimes builds up in the radiator that can clog thermostats. Another problem might be the thermostat sticking or the water pump is leaking.
Your thermostat is sticking in the closed position,it is usually located where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. Very inexpensive item
looks like a sensor or thermostat going into engine block
If it is leaking trans fluid into the coolant it can cause overheating.
can the gasket go bad behind the water pump houseing
You either have a cracked block, blown head gasket, or intake manifold gasket leaking coolant into the engine oil. You have bad problems.
Running it while leaking can cause it to overheat repeatedly, which can cause thermostat damage , along with other problems.

pluged cooling fins in and on the radiador
generally, water pumps leak when defective but still pump water. could be thermostat, plugged radiator, loose belt, low coolant answer if pump is not leaking, get engine to running temp and remove radiator cap look in to see if water is circulating if water is circulating it is not the pump i would change thrmostat then check radiator cap
It is leaking and overheating because a part has failed.
