      Hi Casbob! Glad I could be of help. This BWD S9811 is actually the Converter Clutch Solenoid. I have forwarded some pictures to your email address, that showing the locations of the different solenoid control valves. The converter clutch valve just operates the clutch, and does not affect shifting. It will cause a stall out and kill the engine when you come to a stop if it is stuck on – the clutch will be engaged. The shift valves do control shifting, of course. They can stick and be jarred into operation by a bump. It can also be caused by the valve body itself. These valves are all located in the transmission pan. You can try replacing 1-2 2-3 and 3-2 valves shown below. I can’t guarantee that will fix it, but it is worth a try. Otherwise, you will need a good transmission technician to test the pressures and the valves to correctly diagnose the problem. They will need a scanner with the ability to control these valves while driving. That’s how they do the diagnosis.

      Hi Greg, the control solenoid is an essential component of the transmission system. It helps regulate the torque converter lockup, pressure control, and shifting and kickdown for passing gears. The transmission control solenoid is located inside the transmission.
