Hi Roland,
The piece in question should be the modulator. It's on the driver's side of the transmission about half way back. It senses engine load through a vacuum line to control the shift points. There are other inputs from the throttle cable and kick-down switch.
If the car is a diesel, there is another vacuum related piece on the injection pump that sends a signal to the modulator. Either one is important to proper
operation of the transmission. What is the car doing?
Regards,
Randy D.
