while how you said it was quite cryptic, and made little sense, it sounds like you mean that the car is not getting as hot as it should be. the usual issue for this problem is the thermostat has failed and stuck open, causing the coolant to flow to the rad when it shouldn't. try replacing the thermostat, and if the gauge still does not show warm it could just be an issue with your temperature sensor, or the gauge itself, if that is the case take it to a garage to get the diagnostics read
