Hey there, me again,
In addition to my post the other day, I think I may have found a Landcruiser 100 series to buy. I have checked all the items suggested by you fine folk, and all looks ok. The only one issue that I found is an auto transmission shift problem. The shift between 2nd to 3rd under power, flares up before taking 3rd. Also, maybe connected to the same problem, is the kickdown, did not seem to take correctly on a couple of occasions. Does anybody out there have any thoughts on known auto transmission issues with petrol 100 series landcruisers? Some suggestions say an auto service may fix some shifting issues. Again, any help would be appreciated
Cheers Chris.

Hi there, we recently bought a 2001 100 series petrol auto cruiser and had an intermittent problem with the gearbox refusing to kick down when accelerating. A visit to a good auto transmission guy and a diagnostic check revealed a fault with the throttle positions sensor, fixed for $270.00 including the diagnostic analysis and resetting the system and problem is gone. Not sure if it is the same problem but get the diagnostic check done before you buy, ( not like me and finding out after ) to be on the safe side.
Hope this helps.
