Pressure Control Solenoid

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus and when I was driving it to work one morning, the car decides to stop moving, like i had bumped it into neutral. The car will not go in any other gear but park now and will not move into any other gear. From hard research i found that it is a good possibility that it is the “Pressure Control Solenoid”. I am wondering if anybody knew where the Solenoid might be at. I know it is on the Transmission, but I have no clue where it is. Any kind of help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Fluids full, no drags, and no signs of anything starting to happen…just out of nowhere stops.
