Sounds like a possible engine thermostat opening too soon and staying open. Check there first.

One thing I would check is the anti-freeze. If you have added any, it may test too low. In a lot of engines, too high ratio of anti-freeze to water will cause a heating problem. Testing at about 35 below zero is a good target. I hope this helps.
