GM TECHS: need info on 4T45E tranny in my sunfire

The codes come back to A & B solenoid isssues. Where are these located? A guy at work said he thought they were under the bottom pan, so I popped that off last night and I didn't see any electric solenoids at all. An online search found the parts for under $20, 2 required, so I'd like to get this fixed and save money. Right now (before I dropped the pan and drained the Trans fluid) the tranny only stays in low gear. I have been told that this is an electrically shifted trans and one or both solenoids being bad will do this.

TIA

Here is the parts legend for the attached diagram...

(13) TFP Manual Valve Position Switch Assembly
(46) Input Speed Sensor
(62) Output Speed Sensor
(305) 1-2 and 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valves
(305) 1-2 and 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valves

Mark

Decided to add instructions:

2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve Replacement
Removal Procedure

Important
Retainer clips hold in each of the valve line-ups. Use a small screwdriver in order to remove the retainer clips. Be careful not to score the valve body when removing the retainer clips and valves. Before removing the valve line-ups, inspect each valve line-up for freedom of movement.

Remove the transmission side cover. Refer to Case Side Cover Replacement .
Remove the 2-3 shift solenoid retainer clip (304), the 2-3 shift solenoid (305) with O-ring (303), the 2-3 shift valve (307), and the 2-3 shift valve spring (306).
Installation Procedure

<see shift2.gif>



Install the 2-3 shift valve spring (306), the 2-3 shift valve (307), the 2-3 shift solenoid (305) with O-ring (303) and the 2-3 shift solenoid retainer clip (304).
Install the transmission side cover. Refer to Case Side Cover Replacement .
