location
this is a comon problem
you get a second unit from a wrecker making sure it comes
from the same model as the car you have

on the 4 cyl the tcu is under the floor carpet below the radio

on the V6 Cyl tcu is under the centre of the dash up on the firewall
and it may have a fault with the heater core leaking

the ECU is on the passenger side foot well fire wall

Multiple things can go wrung with the TCM , not juss the capacitors. There are various power diodes etc that also can over heat or the board itself over heat or short. As chain rattle suggested , try to find one at a wreckers or salvagers
