Your cooling could be either the temp gauge is showing less than normal, or the AC is too warm, or some other matter.

Can you clarify, please?

Thank you for the additional info.

I'm at a loss to understand what is wrong. Your first post says "cooling is going low every 60 miles", and your second says it "slowly rises to normal temperature."

Are you saying that you don't get any heat for longer than usual?

AC is supposed to blow cold air.

Please help us understand what it is that seems to be an issue with your car.

Since your losing coolant start the engine cold, like after sitting overnight and let it idle while looking around for the leak. Most leaks will show up when the cold engine starts to heat up due to expansion as the engine warms up. If that doesn't work they sell dye kits that you put UV dye in the coolant and use the UV flashlight in the kit to see where the leak is.
Leak could be at any hose, water pump or the radiator.
