Normal engine operating temperatures are typically in the range of
75 - 90 Degrees C. 110 C is certainly overheating.

My 2002 chrysler sebring is leaking antifreeze on passage side on the ground not running hot have oil change good Every other day I have to add leaking until it low in the reservoir then it stop need help

Gloria, the leak can be from numerous places in the cooling system. You can run the vehicle until the temp is hot with the cooling system full and the hood open. With a flashlight look around for leaking coolant. If you are not comfortable doing that take it to a qualified mechanic to have it checked. ?Dont mess around with this. The #1 killer of engines is overheating. this will only get worse and most often it will happen suddenly. Then instead of several hundred dollars you will be looking at thousnads of dollars.

1994 vw golf 1.9 overheating

First question is what constitutes "overheating".
Since the car has been parked for years, the thermostat could be sticking closed.
The cooling system could have air pockets and need to be bled.
The water pump may be corroded inside and not pumping enough volume.
If the gauge goes above half way, the fans should start up. But half way should be more or less normal, not hot yet.
I would look at flow problems first, beginning with removing the thermostat and driving it without one for a few days. Also check and see if there is a process to bleed the cooling system of air.

What does it mean when the

Take care of your cooling problem! Is it overheating? or just during normal operating temperature? If it is under normal operating temp you have a bad heat sensor!

Low coolant light came on,water coming out of expansion tank overflow,not heat from heaters and fans came on and did not shut off.Had thermostat replaced and fluid replaced with a vacum pump,all problems...

when engines overheat they also tend to cook the electrical components at times also. you may need to replace the 2 pin coolant temp sender responsible for sending signal to the dash. the one with more wires will be for the ecu and it sounds like that one is working. cheers
