    Hello! The pc solenoid or better known as the pressure control solenoid controls transmission line pressure. If the line pressure is being commanded to full pressure it may be c trying to compensate for a slippage occurring in the transmission. Chances are the diagnosis is correct. Hope this info helps!

Trying to flush the radiator--cannot find the bleed valve for coolant.

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)
