1998 Mystique running hot

My 1998 4 cyl. is running hot . it never gets above the "A" in NORMAL of the Temperature guage. I replaced the Thermostat and pressure flushed the radiator (which has good flow), I checked all the hoses and all appeared good. I also made sure the cooling fan is working, it is. Does anyone know anything about the sensors that control the cooling of the engine? The check engine light is not on. We just replaced all the Timing assembly (belt,Pulleys, everything). Also the A/C compressor went out so I by passed it with a shorter accessory belt until I can afford to have it fixed (clutch). Please help as I am afraid I may warp the head because of the running hot! Thank You!!!!!!!
