      A:

      The Transmission Control Solenoid should be located inside the transmission, you have to remove the trans pan, and filter to access it. It will be bolted in place as a solenoid pack where the traditional throttle body would have been.

  • Q:

    have a 94 ford taurus gl, 3.0 ohv, axod trans- when slowing down, down shifts very hard going from 2nd to 1st. also when starting out - rpms go very high before shifting from 1st to 2nd. occassionaly also revs high going from 2nd to 3rd. could this be the cause? (vehicle sat for about a year prior to purchase, and was low on fluid - have not changed filter or fluid yet). it was suggested i get a trans flush to see if that helps.

      It's the one that controls the movement of the shifter. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

  • Q:

    When my transmission is cold it shifts good and when it warms up it it chugs and hesitates when I take off after stopping in traffic or at a red light. It will also stall when I put it in drive. I've changed the trans.filter and the fuel filter. Do I need a transmission solenoid?

      You might need to replace this part, however I would recommend taking it in to a reputable mechanics shop to determine the exact cause of why it does hesitate going into gear.
