SunCoast direct solenoid

Just got my solenoid in today but no instructions came with it as to which one to replace. there are 2 possible one that look like it would go just due to the allen wrench in the back. do I replace the one towards the engine or replace the one towards the tailgate?

It is #709 on the diagram attached. It is in the middle of the back row of solenoids!

nice i'll replace it tomorrow and take pictures so its a better idea than that diagram. I just did the filter today and changed to fluids. Helped my buddy install his turbo back 5" and s&b intake on his 06 cummins

So you changed the fluids and filter on your tranny before doing the solenoid? You have to drop the pan again to do it

I know but I didn't know which one to replace and it was getting late so I just changed the filter and fluid and went home. I'll do it all again tomorrow no big deal really.

Here's a picturte of the valves installed and what it looks like when the pan comes down. As Cobb said its middle rear(#6 labelled direct or "D"). Excuse the chicken scratch on the picture just made nots to my self for easier indentification of each solenoid.

Re-tune the truck and let it re-learn, once it relearns you will notice a significant change.
