Nope, the '96 has an OBDII computer to control it, and the '95 has an OBD1 computer controlling it.

Is it possible that I can switch the harness plugs that bolt to the parts on the transmission for the wiring harness

No, the sensors are different and send OBDII codes.

Well thank you for your help I made a deal with the junkyard and they said if it doesn't work I can bring it back and get a refund I'm just going to try and give her a shot
