Just a few questions

So I took a some what long drive the other day it was like 30-45 mins there and the same amount of time back. So I was driving the car for a good amount of time. And my engine temp was pretty low the whole time. Is that a bad thing I feel like it should be a little warmer for that kind of driving? But my bigger problem is that when I go to accelerate the car it struggles around 3.5k and really won't go any higher so I just shift to the next gear. I have a new clutch and flywheel going in soon cause my clutch is pretty junk right now it releases very high and doesn't catch very well at all. You guys think this acceleration problem could have something to do with the bad clutch or a low engine temp or something else? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Are you judging the temp based on the stock guage... Because they aren't that accurate. Do you have a lower temp thermostat?

Yes it's a stock temp gauge. And not that I know of but I was thinking about that cause my car before would get to regular operating temp then I was having some serious problems so I brought it to a mechanic and he said he replaced a bunch of stuff so Ian thinking he might have replaced it with the wrong one? Is there a way I can check?

Not without pulling out the thermostat. I am not sure if it would say on it, but a last alternative is to stick it in a pot of water on the stove and if you have a meat thermometer you can keep an eye on when it opens as the water temp warms up. They have 160 degree, 180, an I think stock is 192 or 195.
