Question about 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser
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

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.

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.
