    removing the thermostat will damage the engine. it must be there and functioning.
    i would check the cooling fan for failure.
    i would also recommend a shop to do a coolant diag to pin point your issue before you damage your motor.

    you may have a blown head gasket. a leak down test from a shop will verify.
