Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. The thermostat is responsible for maintaining engine temp. I should close when temp is too low and open when temp starts to get too high. if thermostat is sticking open it will cause the symptoms your describing so I'd start by replacing thermostat which should take care of problem. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
