    does it not even fit where it's supposed to go, or is the wiring connection just different?

    Connection wire fits. It's the thread/bolt like size. Both that I've ordered from different vendors dropped right it.. Too small

    Toyota seems to favor M8x1.25 and M10x1.25mm bolts.
    You could determine the thread size of your old sender, then get a reducer to match the thread size of the replacement.
    If the sender is for coolant temperature, you could just install a universal unit somewhere. Usually they attach to the radiator.
    It's not like you have to deal with a computer.
