My GF's transmission has given up the ghost. 2001 4runner, 2wd. Transmission is an A340E; from what I understand I can only use one out of a 2000 or 2001 model year because those years they went away from a kickdown cable and to an electronic kickdown. Have contacted Irbis, YotaYard and Yota Jim. Can't find a used replacement.

Does anyone have any other resources I can call for a used tranny? Failing that, what shop can do a bench rebuild on this one?

Thank you,

Max

I would check Craigslist in the Springs and Denver for a used one.

If you go for a rebuild, I would sure find a shop that has some patient, skilled folks, because they will only rebuild 1 Toyota tranny for every 20 GM or Ford ones, and you don't want some rube in there screwing it up for you. Many transmission shops clearly have no use for foreign stuff, or simply haven't done enough of them to know how to do it right.

could also get a 2wd tranny and just swap the tailhousing, and possible the shaft
