    Actually the heater gets coolant flow even before the thermostat is open.

    YES- But what good will it do to cool a cold engine? (thermostat is closed)?
    Also, the heater by itself would never provide enough engine cooling to keep the engine from overheating if the thermostat is stuck closed.....( That is why I mentioned the thermostat being open) ( although I get your point ).

    BTW- You are a Delorean genius bitsyncmaster....
