If you drop the trans pan it is right there. Here is a picture.


  1. Remove the battery duct and battery cover:
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the under cover.
  4. Remove the control valve body.

  1. Remove the solenoid valve (s).
  2. Apply ATF to a new O-ring and install it on the solenoid valve.

  1. Install the solenoid valve in the control valve body. Tightening torque 7.8 - 10.8 Nm (80 - 110 kgf-cm, 69.5 - 95.4 inch lbs.)
  2. Install the control valve body.
  3. Install the under cover.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. Install the battery duct and battery cover.
  6. Add ATF and, with the engine idling, inspect the ATF level and inspect for leakage.
  7. Perform the mechanical system test

Shift solenoid A, B, C
Resistance 1.0 - 4.2 ohms (ATF temperature: -40 - 150°C (-40 - 302°F)

hope it works out for you. Make sure the fluid is right,many cars call for specific fluid and screw up with the wrong stuff.
