The torque converter is inside the transmission. The (electric) clutch solenoid - usually - is on the outside of the transmission case.

Get a flashlight, get under the vehicle and look on the transmission case for electrical wires..

Where is the TCC solenoid located

It's in the transmission. Remove the trans pan and it is on the solenoid package. But the solenoid may not be the problem. Could be the wiring, plugs(inside and outside the trans), torque converter, or the computer. 7b32d407-41bb-449c-8dd9-0a5f7effbf7f.gif

Go here - - and find the AW-4 Service and Diagnostic Manual. Looks like you need to test some solenoids.

What is the shift solenoid and torque converter clutch solenoid look like in a 2011 ford f-150 with 4x4 and v8 with 5.0

Either one is easy to change. But you have to take the pan off the trans on the bottom. There is about 12 to 14 bolts holding it on. When you get the pan down look to the drivers side and you will see 2 solenoids there. The one you will need to change is the inner one. there will be one bolt holding it in place. And if you have to change the converter one it will be on the passenger side near the frount of the trans. It will have 4 wires going to it. They both will be in the valve body.

Starts & run when put in gear shuts off, will restart 3.8eng will not move as though the trans is locked

There is a good chance that your torque converter is locked due to a torque converter lock-up solenoid malfunction. (pretty common) The torque converter lock-up solenoid is what locks the torque converter to put the transmission into overdrive. When they malfunction, it will cause the transmission to be stuck in overdrive at all times (this is not supposed to happen until the vehicle speed gets over 45 Mph). You must remove the side cover from your transmission to replace the torque converter lock-up solenoid.
Please also be advised that many of the solenoid malfunctions - especially on older, high mileage vehicles, are caused by dirt and debris in the transmission. This debris is usually caused by wear or breakage of internal parts (like clutches or bearings) in the transmission. I would recommend also pulling the lower pan and filter off to see what kind of debris is in the pan and evaluate whether this may be caused by a more serious problem.

Sounds like the Torque converter clutch Solenoid is going bad and might need replaced. Its usually inside the Transmission oil pan attached to the Valve body. Good luck

torque converter lock-up solenoids are at the top of the transmission on the OUTSIDE. The two came off with three bolts and the screens on mine were clogged with "lint".

Emissions test code comes up as 0743 torque converter circuit problem. how do you fix this on a 1998 ford windstar 3.8l engine?

U have a problem in the transmission torque converter clutch control circuit, most likely the solenoid switch that applies the lock up clutch of the torque converter is defective or a the torque converter itself is defective, the trans pan will need to be removed to check the problem further.
