Temp Gauge Doesn't Work

Hey everyone, the temp gauge on my dash hasn't worked since ive owned the truck...it goes from below the white line on the cold side and rises a tad until the needle is right over the white line then doesn't move at all after that...the truck warms up and runs fine, but with summer almost here and long trips ahead planned id like to get it working just in case it gets a little too hot. Any ideas what might be bad or what to look for? Id look for corroded wires but don't really know where to start...any help would be appreciated!!
Thanks, Nick

It is probably the Temp Sending unit. It is screwed into the intake manifold, in a water passage. The dial indicator is much more $$ and effort.
