Assuming that your gauge is accurate, then you probably have a stuck thermostat in the open position that is not allowing the coolant to stay in the engine long enough to reach proper operating temp. Replace the thermostat or have a good mechanic do it for you.

Where is the Thermostat on a 1999 Chrysler Sebring convertible?

Behind the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is located at the rear end of the top radiator hose. Follow the top radiator hose. It leads to the thermostat housing. There are either two or three bolts holding it in place. The bottom one can be tricky to remove. A quarter inch universal joint with a socket might work well. Unlike many cars which have a thermostat positioned horizontally, the 1999 Sebring 2.5 V-6 has the thermostat positioned vertically. It can be very tricky to get it into proper position while replacing it and putting the housing over it. It is sometimes easier to put the thermostat into the housing, and then placing the housing in position, and then placing the three screws in as far as possible using your fingers. Also, using a small amount of thick grease to hold it in position in the housing can help. I believe there might be a tab on the thermostat that must be placed into an indent in the housing, but not sure. I have this car, and have replaced the thermostat myself. The bolts are probably 10mm. The quarter inch or three eighth inch universal joint with an extension and a standard depth socket is almost required for the bottom bolt. -Douglas

91 dodge stealth when up to temperature driving down the road it has luke warm heat when stop or going around 20mph heat gets colder?

that means that your thermostat needs to be changed it calls for 195 Fahrenheit in cold weather and a 180 degree for summer but it seems to me that your thermostat is stuck in the open position and its not keeping the antifreeze at the proper temperature if it were overheating the thermostat would be stuck in the closed position after changing the thermostat and in the future it starts overheating you would need to replace the water pump or the belt if the belt is loose it would keep the water pump from spinning at the proper ratio in order for the water to circulate in the cooling system in your motor this advice is for future reference in case it happens while we're on the subject good luck that should cure the problem
