How do you fix the temperature gauge on a 1991 V6 Chevy Corsica?

My Corsica's temp gauge went out, and to replace the OEM gauge would have required buying the whole instrument panel. We bought an aftermarket gauge and mounted it under the dash. It cost much less, and hey, it's not a show car so I don't mind that it's not 'perfect'. Just find the temp sensor on the engine (driver's side of car on back side of engine), and either use the sensor wire there or replace with one that works with your gauge.
