Thermostat's usually fail in the open position. The engine will run cooler than normal, which can not only keep you from getting the heat you want to keep warm in the winter, it can also affect engine performance. Your engine was designed to operate within a narrow temperature range, and if it doesn't reach that temperature, the computer(s) that control engine and transmission function may regulate the air/fuel mixture and shift timing for a cold engine. This can adversely affect performance and emissions.
