HI, There are 2 shift solenoids. Both are located on the side of the valve body(see attachments) which is behind the transmission side cover. This a fairly big job as you have to remove the engine mounts, disconnect catalytic converter, intermediate steering shaft, remove the left side drive axle, support the transmission and then lower the engine cradle/subframe in order to access the side cover to remove it to get to the valve body and shift solenoids Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit.
