I spoke to a tuner who did a manual conversion to auto on a Hilux. The stopping point for him, was that he needed a auto ECU. As in then engine ECU had to be made for a auto Hilux.
So you might have to consider that as well...

Good point.....im exploring availability of needed parts. Will keep that in mind. About two years ago someone had a full conversion for sale for 15k......so i was curoius how its prices were at this point in time.

Two very important fixes I found here that people with older D40 Navaras May eventually come across . My van suddenly wasn’t changing from drive —> neutral —> reverse etc and was just stuck in one position . Now your vehicle may be stuck in reverse or anything else and the dashboard would should this . The centre console where you would be changing gear would be moving very normal . It may be the bushing that eroded away with time as shown in one of the videos above or the other part which moves as shown in the second video . If anyone wants to sticky this or open a new thread it was something good to discover as another issue that can come up with the D40

Newly installed bushing after ordering it Sunday and came in via skybox . Van back up and running. The entire transmission shift cable is a bit over $1000 at massy while after customs charges this came up around $250

Ok straight to the point. This nav hv me pullin out my hair.

Loss of power.....horrible to drive.

Will start with no problems and idle....will drive ok with light throttle under 2000rpm......will drive like crap over 2000rpm, 3000rpm and so onn.....i have no black smoke even with foot planted.

Boost at 30.9inHG at idle and will reach a max at 62.3inHG over 2500rpm....

Fuel press at idle is about 4550psi.....and will reach a max of about 14300psi in higer revs.

Again...nav jus sounds like its labouring and no torque or acceleration.

Also noticed the fuel pressure would fluctuate even at constant throttle/ pedal position.

And the tps reading would also fluctuate even tho i would hv my foot at constant throttle.

What the hell is wrong with my nav.....

No codes detected....also did the pump relearn pedal dance a few times.......did not help.

You're going to need to give us some more information, MarvinC. Fan status, coolant levels, etc. Troubleshooting without background information will frustrate us as much as your issue is frustrating you now, if not more.

So I'm having some knocking issues with my D40 engine, it starts ok but as i start to drive, the engine knocks like if tappets were making noise. It lasts for a few minutes and then gets quiet. Only happens on cold start. Comments/suggestions anyone?
