Factory Water Temp Gauge Stopped Working

Did a quick search but found nothing on this. Where is the sending unit for the water temp gauge? Is there a way to check if it's functioning or is it cheep enough to just replace?

I hope this is a simple fix and not a cluster problem.

The sender is real inexpensive and just to the left of the Tstat IIRC.

As said it is right to the left of the pipe on the water pump and it cost 20 bucks to replace. Might want to check and see if it came unplugged or a wire is broke/damaged first.
