Actually the first answer was right. The shift solenoids on Honda transmissions are on the outside. But if the car does not want to shift first thing is the check the fluid color, odor, and level. If it's black or brown and smells burnt that's not good and it could possibly be something internal screwing up the solenoid. The cheapest easiest way to fix the solenoid would be a junk yard. A Trans shop will charge you a lot and usually will want to change the whole tranny and not just 1 part.
