So, I went back under the truck. I brought with me a small mirror and a powerfully bright flashlight to see on top of the transmission and anywhere else. I was able to locate many electrical connections, but no hoses whatsoever. Still, I went to auto zone and asked for a shift modulator. The guy had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. I told him the issues I was having and he referred me to a transmission control solenoid, which is $90 and had to be special ordered.
The connection between the drive shift and transmission is completely free of any wires or hoses. There is an electrical connection from the muffler to the transmission. It runs to a small metal shiny rod connected on the side of the transmission onto other electric components. There are also other electronic connections. I would really like to fix this thing this week. I can't afford a mechanic, so I need to do all the work myself.
