Q: Where is the automatic transmission fluid pressure solenoid located? on 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

I am attempting to replace the automatic transmission fluid pressure solenoid. Where is it located? Under the hood or attached to the transmission (transaxel) under the car?
The car is a GT2 with 95,000 miles.
I noticed the car was up-shifting roughly yesterday. I checked the fluid the following day and it was NOT low. I talked to Pep-Boys technician who said "Check online forms". The forms told me it was either a bad fluid pressure solenoid or it needs a flush (did at 60,000). I bought an ACDelco 24219819 Automatic Transmission Solenoid for $25 online. Now all I need to know is where to put it.

Instructions say "remove the transmission case side cover",
labor guide says 3 hours labor to replace.
