Very much doubt you will,maybe filters and such but actual spares for some makes of cars are only available from the dealers .Yes some motor factors might have pattern parts for some common parts like electric window winders or exhaust parts but ?? sounds like what your looking for is dealer only

TCC solenoid operation depends on signals provided by the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor, brake switch, Throttle Position (TP) sensor, Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and gear position.

The lockup is the last 'shift' feeling when you get to a steady cruising speed. It basically turns the torque converter into a regular (manual type) clutch until you make a significant change in speed or throttle position, at which point it 'unlocks' and turns back into a regular torque converter. Not locking the TC will hurt your highway gas mileage, and may cause you to fail emissions testing (if you need emissions testing).

A simple loose/corroded connection can cause the error, but unless you have had work done, drivern through high water, or something along those lines, it's not hugely likely. On the other hand, it's simple, fairly quick, and the absolute cheapest thing to check for. :)

Most likely, it's either the TCC solenoid itself, or your torque converter is going bad.
Without the exact code (number) it's hard to be more exact.

There is a large chart that includes your model located at:
Your model starts a little over halfway down the page.

try taking the fuel line loose at the fuel filter and see if any fuel comes out of it. if no fuel is coming from the tank before the filter more than likely have the lines reversed. also make sure that you are getting the proper pressure to the fuel rail.

Check the mounting of the fuses for the concerned instruments they maybe loosely installed.

Check the cable clearance. Too much clearance will cause clutch slippage or total clutch disengagement. Adjust the cable so that the clutch pedal will be hard to press by hand .5 to .75 inch from its initial point.

"N" is for Normal
"A/T" Is for Automatic Transmission
"P" is for Power

When "P" is selected a light that says "POWER"
comes on, it is just under the speedometer.

This switch is for the automatic transmission, it changes the shift points in the transmission for loaded or towing conditions when you need more power.

the screws for adjusting the headights are right next to the lights, they are phillips heads and are for adjusting the side to side, 
the adjusting screws for the up and down, are on the bottom of the headlights, and they are a small hole in the grill trim, these lights need a pretty long skinny screwdriver with a phillips head

Sounds like you have a cold start problem. With the engine check the oxygen sensor and check the temperature sensor. That might help to fix the problem. Also check all the spark plugs.
