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. Roy

i put in new fans why only when ac on takes about 15 mins then turn off ac cools right down

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

A bad ground on the left frame rail can cause intermittent operation of the radiator cooling fans or AC compressor.
