if you go thru the kick panel on the passenger side, you will then have to go into the engine bay, under the car, and then drop the oil pan. the solenoids are on the valve body. the only transmission part in the kick panel is the control unit. and if you have never changed the trans fluid, that is probably why the solenoid is sticking. i would flush it, add lubegard, then drive it and hope. i like and use valvoline hi mileage dex/merc, walmart has it for 3.67/qt
