Sounds like the cooling system hasn't seen attention in a long time.

Dump the coolant, flush and fill it with new and change the thermosat. See where that nets you.

Thanks Joe_F and Hogfan. I took your advice Joe_F and change the stat and flush and fill, the needle on the gauge stays on the a and l, after a few minutes the fan kicks on and stays on for about 45 seconds is this standard procedure.

Did you bleed the cooling system? What does your shop manual have to say about the bleeding?

Flush and fill is not bleeding the system?

Nope. See autolibrary or a shop manual for how to bleed (if applicable).
