Where is the shift solenoid in a 96 oldsmobile regency

There are normally several shift solinoids 1st 2nd, 3rd 4th. one solinoid operates 2 gears. They are located inside the gearbox, you will need to remove the sump & determine which one you need to replace.

Chevy 4L60 Transmission Shifting Problem

There are 6 solenoids in the trans. Very rarely are these ever bad as it is nearly always mechanical failure. Solenoids are under pan though.

1999 Durango starts out in 2nd and shifts into drive fine regardless of what gear is selected. Even if 1st is selected, starts in 2nd. Reverse is fine. Will not shift into final or overdrive. Govenor...

I don't have the shifting schematics for THIS vehicle .
However, they are available in the vehicle's repair manual. If you obtain this manual look for what is common between 2nd gear, final drive and overdrive this is your problem.
Remember they source of the problem may require a rebuild of the transmission. You may want to save some time and just give it to a repair shop.

Sounds like torque converter, or pump in the transmission is going bad.

shift solinoids. but first check the transmission fluid. also this has the 4.9l right? auto zone sells shift solinoids for $30 each . if it is 4.9l it has the 4t60e transmission. i think thees shift solinoids are in the side transmission cover. when u replace the solinoids use a multimeter to check the wiring harness. disconnect the wiring harness located on top of tranny. unplugg shift solnoids and conncet multimeter to connector terminals put meeter on continuity it should not beep . if it does internal wiring harness is bad.( BEFOR DOING ABOVE : CHECK PCM CODES. ON INSTRAMENT CLUSTER HOLD WARMER BUTON AND OFF BUTTON DOWN FOR A FEW SECONDS AT THE SAME TIME A SERISE OF CODES SHOULD DISPLAY WRIGHT THEM DOWN AND EMAIL ME AT BRANDONDAY87@YAHOO.COM. FOR FURTHER ASISTANCE.

1996 Cadillac Deville not shifting into drive or top gear. Also starts in second. Traction control button doesn't change anything. Flushed fluid but no change.

change shift solinoids. located in transmission pan. 4.6l north star has a 4t80e tranny. remove bolts holding pan drop pan . now disconnect the shift solinoids thair are 2 u should see several bolts around 20 bolts holdong the valve body to the transmission unscrew thees bolts . ( 10MM) before removing all bolts disconnect the hook with a clip going to the valve body.its located to a spring and lever. now remove rest of bolts. DO NOT LET IT FALL DOWN. remove the connector going to manifold pressure sensor. use a flat head screw driver to pull clips holding the solinoids in place. thair should be a small **** located on the other side of throdle body. DO NOT REMOVE ALL THE BOLTS OUT OF THE BODY. THAIR ARE BALL BERINGS INSIDE THAT WILL FALL OUT OF PLACE. the screen is located in between the shift solinoids. DO NOT DO THIS JOB WITHOUT ALREADY HAVING THE REPLACMENT PARTS ON HAND. when putting every thang back together i would check the wiring harness for anny shorts . ANNY OTHER ?S EMAIL ME AT BRANDONDAY87@YAHOO.COM

Won't go into 2nd gear

its the valves in the valve body,depending on how bad their stuck you can get a solution(on ebay) that can release the gum in the valve body.if the problem isnt severe it should work ,if so drain tranny fluid and put new filter in with another dose of tranny solution.this willremove the gum out of the fluid so it doesnt happen agian.this has worked for about ten people i have recomended it to. so good luke.this will cost you under 100$,better than about 2500$
