Answers :

Your thermostat sound like it is stuck open.
\012How it works is your thermostat is designed to be closed when your engine is cold.
\012After you start your car your engine coolant circulates in the engine block.
\012This helps the engine reach its normal running temperature.
\012When your engine reaches the normal running temperature the thermostat slowly opens allowing the coolant to circulate through your radiator. the radiator cools the coolant and maintains your engine temperature so your engine does not over heat.
\012If your thermostat is stuck open your coolant is not permitted to allow the engine to reach normal running temperature. Causing your low temperature reading.
\012Hope this helps please give feedback good luck FixYa
