REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



1997-99 4Runner
A340D, A340E and A340H TRANSMISSIONS

The transfer case and the transmission should be removed as an assembly.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. If required, remove the air cleaner assembly.
  4.  
  5. Disconnect the transmission throttle cable from the throttle body.
  6.  
  7. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  8.  
  9. Remove the engine undercover.
  10.  
  11. Drain the transmission and transfer case (if applicable) fluid.
  12.  
  13. Detach the wiring connectors from the transmission and transfer case (if applicable).
  14.  
  15. Disconnect the starter wiring at the starter. Remove the mounting bolts and the starter from the engine.
  16.  
  17. Make matchmarks on the front and rear driveshaft flanges and the differential pinion flanges. These marks must be aligned during installation.
  18.  
  19. Unbolt the front and rear driveshaft flanges. If the vehicle has a two-piece driveshaft, remove the center bearing bracket bolts. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  20.  
  21. Disconnect the speedometer cable.
  22.  
  23. Remove the front exhaust pipe and the bracket.
  24.  
  25. Disconnect the transmission oil cooler lines at the transmission.
  26.  
  27. Disconnect the oil cooler lines bracket and remove the transmission oil filler tube, as required.
  28.  
  29. Support the transmission, using a jack with a wooden block placed between the jack and the transmission pan. Raise the transmission, just enough to take the weight off of the rear mount.
  30.  
  31. Remove the rear engine mount with the bracket, the rear crossmember, and the transfer case (if applicable) undercover.
  32.  
  33. Remove the dynamic damper (regular cab only) and the No. 2 cross-shaft bracket.
  34.  
  35. Place a wooden block(s) between the engine oil pan and the front frame crossmember.
  36.  
  37. Slowly, lower the transmission until the engine rests on the wooden block(s).
  38.  
  39. Remove the torque converter cover at the rear of the engine in order to gain access to the converter bolts.
  40.  
  41. Rotate the crankshaft to access the bolts through the service holes and remove the torque converter bolts.
  42.  
  43. Remove the stiffener plates from the transmission.
  44.  
  45. Disconnect the shift control rod and the transfer case shift lever.
  46.

  2.  
  3. Apply a coat of multi-purpose grease to the torque converter stub shaft and the corresponding pilot hole in the flexplate.
  4.  
  5. Install the torque converter into the front of the transmission. Push inward on the torque converter while rotating it to completely couple the torque converter to the transmission.
  6.  
  7. To be sure the converter is properly installed, measure the distance between the torque converter mounting lugs and the front mounting face of the transmission. The proper distance is 0.71 in. (18mm) for the A340H transmission, or 0.79 in. (20mm) for the A340D, A340E and A340F transmissions.
  8.  
  9. For A340D transmissions, install guide pins into two opposite mounting lugs of the torque converter.
  10.  
  11. Raise the transmission to the engine and align the transmission with the dowel pins.
  12.  
  13. Install and tighten the transmission mounting bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (63 Nm).
