Default 89 Acura Integra not reaching operating temp.?

I own a 1989 Acura Integra RS

My problem is that it won't get up to operating temperature. My heat blows warm, but not as warm as it should. I can drive it for hours, pull over, and pull the radiator cap off without it flying in my face (the coolant is not getting hot enough)

I replaced the thermostat and bled the system. After, I took it for a test drive and it overheated and then the temp went back down to below operating temp. I then took out the thermostat,tested it and it was fine. A couple weeks later I threw in a new one anyways. repeated. test drove it, over heated AGAIN and then went to below operating temp.. Same problem.

I also replaced the radiator cap which did nothing.

I am also positive my water pump is working(tested) So I'm not sure what it could be anymore..

Any Ideas??

Note: it is very cold where i live now. not sure if this is a factor. the outside temp is usually around 5 to 20 degrees.

also my car runs and drives perfectly fine

there is also no check engine light..

I could really use some help..

It sounds like you have a bad temp gage
