that small hole in the housing only helps to get the water that sirculates in the cylinder head chambers to warm up quicker in cold conditions and once the thermostat opens it closes that port off and forces the hot water through the radiator..
that's also why people remove the thermo and thinks the vehicle is running cooler and its not it just takes longer to get hot but once its boiling its boiling..
