i found the pic here sorry but i take it bec it similarto my problem , do you know how to fix this bec i don't thing the thermostat broken bec temperature of the car as usual normal no increasing, i think the leak between the engin and thermostat i was thinking to open the thermostat and putting silicon gasket their ,but the important how to open the thermostat is it necessary to remove the dyanmo self and belt ?or i can open it from down ??

It could be the thermostat seal if it's leaking , so you may as well change the thermostat at the same time as replacing the seal

yes it was the seal for mine that caused this aswell. New thermostat as well for mine. My cars temperature stayed the same as well because I guess I caught the problem out quickly enough
