I am having a hard time locating where the shift solenoid is listed in order for me to replace.
Do you

There is more than one shift solenoid on the transmission. They are all located under the cover on the transmission and can be replaced as a unit but before you do that, why do you think one of them is the problem? A code? Poor shifting?

Well when I had bought the car the man had it checked thoroughly with paper work. And recently I went to get the shift solenoid but that day and say prior my car would actually stall in the middle of driving it. So I had bought the rear and front crank shaft cam. However, I just needed the front. Rear sort of made worse with the jerking. Which leads me back to the solenoid. While driving though especially freeway mph and I am having to slow down it jerks and than when I am putting car into drive, almost as if it is skipping first and auto goes to second, the rpm go a little wild. And only does while in automatic. Being I can drive as manual as well, if driving in manual though, the cars perfect.

Okay, you have the common Nissan trans problems. The best solution I have seen for this is a kit from TransGo It includes a few hard parts and some simple modifications. It is best to have a transmission shop do the install but it cures a lot of the problems that transmission has. Might want to look for a shop near you and ask them.
