Q: i need the location of the shift solenoid

asked by on

I don't know where the shift solenoid is located to r&r it

My car has 169000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. The shift solenoid is located in the valve body assembly which is within the transmission. Typically, these solenoids can be replaced without removing the transmission but the job requires care and attention to detail. Of course, if you are thinking about replacing this part you want to first have a conclusive diagnosis if you were brought to the solenoid while searching for a solution to a transmission problem that you might be having. If you would like an expert to conduct a diagnosis, or if you would simply like to have the solenoid replaced for you, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your location to perform this.
