Actually, the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is located within the transmission housing that is easily accessible through the transmission oil pan. The TCC solenoid may vary in location dependent upon manufacture but generally it is located as aforementioned. It can cause your vehicle to stall if stuck open or close because it controls loads to the engine via your torque converter which is located between the vehicle's engine and transmission. Also, make certain that you attempt to change the transmission fluid and filter before changing the TCC solenoid because that may be your underlying issue. If not, simply reuse your fresh oil and change the TCC soleniod.

If the solenoid is stuck so the torque converter remains locked, the transmission will not be able to shift down and the engine may stall when you slow down from highway speed. This seems to be the most common problem with this part, and it shows up primarily in prolonged high-temperature running.
If you can get the vehicle into reverse with a locked torque converter, you may have to maintain a minimum speed to keep from stalling the engine - not a safe situation.
My experience with hanging TCC solenoids is that they usually release the clutch if they are allowed to cool for a few minutes, if they don't release when the engine stalls.
If the TCC is not locking the torque converter, there will be no difference in high-speed performance when you disconnect the TCC solenoid. If the TCC is working to this extent, disconnecting it will cause a lag in acceleration and loss of gas mileage in high gear. Unfortunately, this is not a completely definitive test; it does not rule out a malfunction in the torque converter clutch mechanism.

This fault is often the torque converter that is defective, that means the ****** must come out and the torque converter replaced.
