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!

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.

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