1991 300 te heating up

I'm having and issue with my wagon heating up. The temp gauge is usually around 80 unless I'm at a traffic light then it moves above 80. If I sit for a while, 10-15 minutes or so it goes up to 90-100 but never as high as 120 or the red mark. I'm thinking it's the fan clutch because it's a bit loose and has no resistance.
Anyone has experience with this issue?

A fan clutch is a possibility and your experience sounds similar to when I needed to replace a fan clutch.

Your car is a W124 series. There is a forum dedicated to W124s. Your question would be better asked there. However, there are very few new questions and most users would encourage you to do a search before posting. I know that you can find many posts on replacing fan clutches and a few innovative suggestions on reconditioning them; I did.

Also, completing your profile, including location, year and model, can be useful to those who might be inclined to offer help.
