Reecekerley :

Hi, The shift solenoids are under the side cover of the transmission. A real pain to change in the car but it can be done.

Reecekerley :

Are you replacing it because of code p0761?

Ok you need to be aware of the forward clutch control valve getting stuck outboard due to a broken retaining clip. This will cause the codes and the no 4th gear condition. Please check it while you have the cover off of the trans or you will probably end up with the same concern. Thanks for the bonus!
