Where is the thermostat on a Ford?
The thermostat sits between the engine and the radiator of your Ford F-150. It is designed to block the flow of coolant to the radiator until the engine has warmed up. Your thermostat reduces engine wear, deposits, and emissions.

Can a car run without a thermostat?
A car without a thermostat would never even warm to operating temperature, much less overheat.

In this case though, the thermostat is not present, so this would not be a problem.
Can you drive a car with a bad thermostat?
