Question about 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser

Open Question

Toyota landcruiser diesel auto direct drive clutch does not disengage automatically

2000Xreg, 60k miles Toyota 4.2TD Amazon automatic: After driving fast enough for the Direct Drive Clutch (DDC)to engage (55mph approx), the DDC does not automatically disengage and gearbox does not change down from 4th or 5th when slowing to a stop, so the engine stalls. If you select 3rd before slowing, all behaves as it should. Toyota say it needs a new torque converter (£2.5k + fitting). I had a 99Vreg identical model that did exactly the same several years ago and there was a cheaper (£2-300) fix at the dealer which I cannot remember and the dealership have either forgotten or won't say. I am sure it is either engine/gearbox management software or gearbox shuttle valve related. This is the only thing that went wrong with either Landcruiser in 107k miles in the Vreg case and 61K for this one. We've changed the gearbox oil and the strainers, slight improvement but has not eradicated the problem. Any ideas? Tom H

SOURCE: I have a landcruiser 1994 gas. i one too change it for diesel

to change a gas to a diesel is a very big project. you will need all new feul system, lines, filters, pumps, etc. then the motor has to fit the trani. which is hard to find, so you might need a new trani. then braking, cooling, heating, and so much more. but if you still want to the best thing to do is get a convertion step- by- step book. if you found someone that could tell you. they would need to know what car exsactly and what motor you would be putting in to it.

SOURCE: Vibration

In 4th or 5th gear, but what speeds? Possibly check universal joints in the front drive shaft. See if there is any up and down movement in the front output yoke on the transfere case. Putting in 4wd changes load shaft. Have seen a few of the transfere case problems. Usually the ujoint will cause when 4wd engaged, but check anyway. Any noise from transfere case?

Bit of a long shot, but check the output of the throttle position sensor with a multimeter.

Also, check that the low range switch isn't continually reporting that you are in low range. The gearbox computer adopts a VERY harsh shift pattern in low range, holding gears until approx. 3500 RPM and even then producing very hard shifts.

Try unplugging the connector that carries the low range sense signal from the transfer box under the vehicle and see if that makes a difference.

WHAT DOES AUTO MEAN


Probably referring to gearboxes
A manual gearbox in a car requires a clutch that has to be disengaged when changing gear. This is done by a pedal operated by the drivers left foot. So a manual car has 3 pedals.
An automatic or auto gearbox does not have a clutch so there is only 2 pedals.
The auto car is started with the gear lever in P for Park and then moved to D for Drive. All gear changes are done automatically

My Toyota Diesel Automatic wont drive, AT/P warning is on the dash when in park mode.It makes a grinding noise when going into P. Will change gears fine into R,N etc. 4X4 is off. Won't move. Any advice?


Have your automatic transmission checked. Check the transmission oil level. Fill it up to the proper level to restore normal function. Also have the clutch friction
disc check for wear, and have it replaced. Send us your
e mail for further assistance.

I have a 1989 camry the tramsmission was starting to slip on occassion in drive and reverse. While driving down the street without any warning I lost drive and reverse completely. Is there a vacuume pump...


Hi. It is not over for the transmission. But it is for the clutch system inside. Yes, the automatic transmissions got clutch(es) inside as well, they just work with the principle of centrifugal force. Once 1st gear reaches max rev, 2nd gear engages due to the mechanical energy generated inside, so forth and so on, ergo moving gears back and forth depending on speed. The trans repair costs for this camry should be around $500-$800 plus the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid). This repair, plus the adequate ATF, most preferably toyota ATF, will give your transmission life another 120,000 miles when 30,000 mile checks are made on time. Hope this will help.
