Calling all car mechanics.

I'm trying to change out parts in my work car to keep it running better. It's a 96 Saturn SL1. She's been a good car for me so far. This weekend I put a new serpentine belt on, which was a pain in the ass. I also wanted to slap on a new thermostat. When I took off the old thermostat it's was missing. The previous owner must have taken it off for a reason. What could this reason be? Thanks in advance.

That's what it seems like, but I should be able to put a new one inside without it leaking.

welp.. you'll be fine without it mang. it's good to have if you live in areas that have cold climates because it'll keep you and the engine near fine operating temps, but where you are, it'll rarely get cold enough that it is necessary.

Yeah I understand. Thanks for the help. There was nothing wrong with it. I just want to start replacing parts, little by little. I'll leave it out, just wondering why it would leak like that. The previous owner must have had it out for a reason.

I'll try to find other things I can replace. My belt works great now. It would squeak like a mothe****er when the AC was on. Embarrassing to say the least.
