Usually you can find this module on the side of the tranny held inplace by a single screw and a bracket if not on the tranny very close to it if you cannot find it it may be internal which means that you will have to drop the tranny in order to replace it. if its external just take the screw out and the bracket off pry up on the module it should pop out replace the new in reverse order but a little trans fluid on the seal of the new one to aid in seating the module.

Where is the transmission modular valve located on 98 ford taurus

Check to see if you can see a vacuum hose runnning down to the tranny, it will be what your modulator hooks up to. Btw, check the hose for breaks burns or other dammage that may cause the modulator not to work properly. Hope that helps.

2001Chevrolet van will not start no juice gettinto modular

it could be that your transmission linkage cable between your cabin gear select/shifter and your transmission has become disconnected.

another cause of sticking in a gear would be a torque converter (basically, the "clutch" of an auto transmission) gone bad. first step to check on the transmission physical health is to check the tranny fluid. it should be a very bright, transparent red- free of smell. if it is crimson, dark, or opaque, and/or smells almost "fishy", change the fluid immediately, and dont expect the transmission to hold out for too much longer, if the fluid has that smell and/or is full of metallic specs.

if you have a lot of miles on the vehicle, you may want to have a shop change the automatic transmission fluid anyway, and check for any metal shavings in the drained fluid.

Fuel pump location

HI. This assembly is modular and it is located inside the fuel tank. It will be required to lower the fuel tank in order to access the modular pump assembly. Here is a diagram that will help you understand the modular assembly.

Wont shift out of first gear

Your vehicle is horrendously notorious for internal transmission failure. You can try a product such as Lucas Transmission fix, available at most parts stores, and walmarts. I have used it in the past and it can be a cure all for transmissions. However no product can fix transmission failure. Have a transmission shop drinve and inspect your transmission, It most likely will require an overhaul.

There are diagnostic pressure tests that can be performed at a shop. Requires special adapters,guages and spec sheet. Most likely trans failure. Possible failed torque converter or front pump.

Well ,

If the fluid is dark, burnt , or has metal or dark clutch material.
The transmission has a burnt up clutches ,the sun shell in most cases with this transmission is the cause of failure inside.The sun shell holds the clutches and steels in place . When the sun shell breaks the transmission is loosing pressure inside. Then the clutch are not engaging . This is why the transmission is slipping This is a very common problem with this vehicle. The sensors/ soleniods are located in the valve body of the transmision. There are some cases where a transmission shop can tighten the sun shell or bands. This could be a temporary fix, The best thing to do is have the transmission replaced or rebuilt at your local transmission repair shop
