    Are you saying you took the thermostat out? If so that's not good, the thermostat is needed to get the engine up to, and to keep it at operating temperature. If the thermostat was functioning properly, then what you need to do is figure out why it's running hot, and fix that problem.

    It will take the engine much longer to get up to temperature (especially in the cold) without a thermostat. As long as it isn't up to temp it's wearing on the engine, causing damage.. so I wouldn't exactly say it's running good.

    If the thermostat is working correctly, then I'd make sure the coolant is topped off and burped. Often times air bubbles will get trapped in the system causing it to overheat.
