Hello,

They are located on the valve body so the transmission pan will need to be removed. Here is a guide and a diagram tom help you get the problem fixed.

Follow the wiring colors to identify the correct solenoid.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

Oll of the control solenoids are under the side cover pan on the driver side of the car. You will find them under the air cleaner/battery box. Removing the pan requires removing the bracket and mount on the end of the transmission.

Im not sure how post on here. But having issue with transmission in my 1992 ford Taurus gl 3.0 6 clylinder. The trans stops pulling but you can turn it off and restart and it will drive little more, then quit again. Amd just keeps repeat that pattern of giving out amd restarting for it to work. Have few ideas what maybe wrong. But maybe someine knows for sure?

It sounds like it is low on fluid or the unit needs to be serviced because you have a filter that is plugged up. Here is a guide to help us service the unit so we can go from there.

This can be one of two things either the computer is having a problem or the transmission is going bad. When it heats up the internal seals go bad allowing the pressure to bypass which makes the transmission go into neutral. Usually there will be a codes if the ECM goes bad.

How did you run the codes like this?
