have you tried replacing the temp sender? Have a proper t-stat? When I lived in Ca., on the coast, my 89 LX Vert always ran very cool and the temp gauge would barely move off cold. So cool in fact that my heater didn't blow "Hot", just barely warm and when a shop had to replace my waterpump they thought the temp gauge was broken. Now I live in Las Vegas and the temp gauge will get up to a 1/4 on 100+* days and only up about 1/8 during the winter/cooler months.
Car runs great, passes emissions every year, 135K miles.

It should be on the left side of the engine, mounted into the intake manifold, near the #1 fuel injector. It should have a 1 wire connector on it.
