When running the car without a thermostat, it runs at 50o C temperature. At this temperature, the humidity gets packed in and condensed, which blend with the oil and result to slush. The slush blocks lubrication and the entire system wear out. This is why running a car with no thermostat is a way to bad vehicle performance.
