If you open your hood & look on the driver-side, find the steering column coming out of the firewall, or the part of the engine compartment under the front windshield. Once you find the steering column,/ you might have someone get inside the car and turn the steering wheel to locate the steering column.. Once you find it, fallow the column down until the column goes from verticle to horizontal, or from the driver-side to the passenger side; at the point the input shaft, or "steering column" goes into the the steering gear, or from verticle to horizontal; that is the "RACK AND PINION", from the flexable rubber boot on the driver-side, to the other flexable rubber boot on the passenger side. Does that answer your question? If not I can explain it differant or point you to a website that shows you where it's located.

I can tell you that it is a steering component that takes the place of the steering box, so if you slide under your vehicle and observe your steering components. perhaps a friend can rock the steering wheel back and forth while you are under there so you can see the movement (it's a good time to inspect for worn components, sloppy movement between components will indicate this). The rack and pinion is inside a tube that transfers action from rotating steering shaft to double opposite push pull of the tie-rods . It is normally behind the main member ,the on the engine sits on

Could be the pump or rack and pinion. Pumps usually whine real bad before dieing(especially when turning). The rack can blow a seal and die all of the sudden.

We do not have diagrams of this setup, but the shift solenoids are all one piece or rack of solenoids you could say, they are located inside the transmission attached to the valve body of the transmission, to access them you must remove the pan on the bottom of the automatic transmission.
