what is a pressure control solenoid "B" on a 2001 330i bmw?

i have a 2001 bmw 330i and got a code p0967 i was told that is was A PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID B CONTROL CIRCUIT HIGH. i dont know what that is. is that the part name? if so where is located, how much are they, etc. i assume it has something to do with the transmission because it seems to skip 1 and 2nd gear.

    It is not advisable to rely on non-BMW scanners or diagnostic machines for complex problems for they give you unclear or incomplete (at its best) or even faulty descriptions of the problem(s).

    Bite the bullet and go to an independent BMW shop or dealer for a better diagnosis. Paying a one hour charge is better than spending money and getting exasperated on wrong diagnosis and repairs.

    Well-intentioned guesses won't help you much either.
