I have an 88 fj62 (220k miles) with A440F auto trans. Yesterday the tranny began slipping while in 3rd and 4th- foot flat to the floor and nothing, then it would "catch". This morning it would "slip" on occasion in all gears and then it would be fine for awhile. The fluid was changed about 9k miles ago it looks fine and smells OK (at least not burnt) and the level is fine. I don't know if this has anything to do with the slipping but about 3 times last week when I came back to the truck after it had sat of an hour or so the tranny tunnel was very warm. After driving it cooled down again. I will try to flush the tranny tomorrow or Tuesday. If the flush does not help I will take it to a local mechanic for a double check but if the decision is that the tranny is toast I kind of need to move fast as this is my daily driver. Options: Used A440F from cruiserparts.com for about $750 plus S&H. A rebuilt unit with an extreme valve body from Rodney in South Australia for about $2,700 shipped to Phoenix; Have this tranny rebuilt locally; An adaptor for a Chevy auto from up n' over (what t'case) $$??; Convert to a 5 speed - H55F. $1850 for tranny plus everything else Suggestions? My preference would be the H55F but I don’t know a local mechanic that would be up to the challenge (I know I’m not). Does anyone know of someone in Phoenix that could do this install? What kind of $ would I be looking at for someone’s time to do this kind of conversion? Anyone know of a tranny shop in Phoenix that has experience with the A440F?
