Question about Cars & Trucks
Need more information. What switch solenoid? Starter solenoid? To drain a automatic transmission, commonly the transmission pan needs to be removed. Some are lucky enough to have a drain plug, but its not real common. When doing that, its a good idea to buy a filter kit for it. It comes with a replacement filter & pan gasket. To refill it, get a small funnel that fits in the transmission dipstick tube and pour in fluid.

Shift solenoid is typically WHEN to shift, not slipping.
Bands and fluid are slipping (and sometimes pump).
Cheap test, remove old, install new fluid... test.
If it works - congrats.
If not, AAMCO or other transmission place for a real test.

Testimonial: "thank u very much :) while I know a little I am not that knowledgeble. "
It does not have a drain plug. You have to loosen the bolts that hold the drain pan and let the fluid drain out that way.

If you're asking about the electronic pressure control solenoid, it's on the driver side of the valve body. There are 4 sols on that side, it's the one closest to the rear. It's bigger & heavier than the other 3.

solenoid switch is on top of starter . thare is also a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood . find this relay and see if it clicks when the key is turned over.get someone to turn key while you put your finger on the relay if its clicking then the starter solenoid is bad,some of thesesolenoids must be replaced with the starter.

They are round "cans" with wires attached. You should have SSA, SSB, SSC, Torque converter and Pressure Control solenoids. They control pressures and have no mechanical linkage.
