No. Electronically incompatible. It might fit but it won’t work.

No, the 2001 transmission is computer controlled. The 1988 isn't. Even if they both were computer controlled the 1988 is OBD I but the 2001 is OBD II. They're completely different computer control systems and are not compatible with each other at all. Hope that helps! Jim
