Pull the wire off the temp sending unit and groung the connector pin. If this pegs the gauge, replace the sending unit.

I would start by checking the engine coolant temp sensor. That is responsible for the temp gauge.

The sender should be a common off the shelf part for most parts stores. There's nothing unusual about it. Where have you been looking?
