Even with a low temp stat, you should still get sufficient heat. A stuck open/broken stat would be slow to heat up but you'd still get heat eventually. You can try flushing the system but the problem could also be insufficient flow from the water pump. I had a '97 in the shop two days ago with the same issue and the problem was the water pump.
