Ordered a replacement Throttle body position sensor for my 2006 Kia Sedona LX. It doesnt look anything like the throttle body position sensor on the actual throttle body

Before attempting to fit I would ensure the supplier has provided you with the correct part.. I am not familiar with that vehicle but if the part is so radically different from the part removed I would be concerned.
Presumably the parts person went through the schematics of the vehicle when ordering?

Where is the location of the ignition contact block on a 1994 vw

Im not sure what exactly you are asking about. As far as the ignition goes, the coils on those cars are known to crack down the center. Also the ignition module is located on the under side of the coil itself. If you are reffering to the cam position sensor it is the reluctor pickup in the distributor itself.
