Default LS400 90 water temp sensor problem

I ordered a new after market water temp sensor. when i got it removed from engine, the sensor is different. teh after market is smaller and can not be fitted into the hole.

I contacted seller, they claimed they have checked with 3 sources and the item they sent to me was exactly for my car model.

can anyone pls help to provide OEM specs e.g. diameter, length etc of the original one?

here is the pic of they sitting together. new one is after market. the signal wire plug fits in perfectly.

correct Toyota part number is 89422-20010

and by the way, that new one does not look like any year model of LS400 water temp sensor!




the seller is completely incorrect

Hi Guys The two wire sensor is for ECU the other one has just one wire ; It is for the Gauge on dash . They are right next to each other in Water bridge ... I got the two wire from True Blue Auto parts online It is Beck/Arnley
$ 23.00 and some cents with free shipping Good service.

I say DO NOT get this one! I ordered one for the price and turn out it did not even fit! Won't even clip on what so ever, it may with some modification to the plastic piece. So I went ahead and went OeM!
