MT 180 HD, hydrostatic drive

Was mowing with tractor and it started slowing down and then quit pulling. Returned pedal to neutral position, waited for a few seconds and tried again. Moved forward slightly and then quit pulling again. Managed to creep back to garage. Engine runs fine, just will not pull self along. Changed filter on hyd system with no effect. What is wrong? Likely cost of repair?

SOURCE: neutral light blinks


Mitsubishi's electronic transmission has a built-in diagnostic....which is indicated via the 'N' (Neutral) light on the instrument cluster.

When the diagnostic computer detects 2 or more of the same fault (which does not rectify itself), then the transmission goes into "LIMP MODE' - this is to protect the transmission from further damage, but will allow you to drive in 3rd gear.

First, we need to ascertain what "sequence" the 'N' light is flashing:

If the N light flashes ONCE per second, then there is an abnormality with one of the transmission components, and will require accessing the computer for further trouble codes.

If the N light flashes TWICE per second, then the transmission fluid is overheating also - pull over, let engine idle in N for a few minutes to allow it to cool down.

Turning key off will only reset the computer momentarily, until and the transmission goes back into LIMP MODE again, so further diagnostic investigation will be required.

If you are technically inclined, i'm happy to explain how you can access the computer codes, without a code reader.

Let me know...

SOURCE: 2000 montero sports Stall while driving,

Just check your air flow meter connections do a "wiggle" test on it (Means move the wires to it while its running) put a bit of revs on while you do it or you will not notice the differance when you find the unrelyable connection! you see the more air rushes through the air meter the more fuel it tells the ECU to supply to the engine! so every it comes out off circit the ECU thinks the engine is idleingso it just supplys that amout of fuel thats why it dies under load!

an injection system will idle with the air meter just wont rev up because the ECU is unaware to supply more fuel understand?
Good Man Good Luck, HOPE THAT HELPS YOU!

Hydrostat slips going up hilland you have to keep feathering the pedal to get it to engage

When you say Hydrostat, I automatically think lawn tractop. If this is correct, then the reason it is slipping and just won't go is that your main drive belt is worn and slipping and won't pull. Replace the main drive belt and make sure the belt tensioner is fine and your done.

1993 paseo slows down when gas pedal is at a certain spot

It could possibly be a throttle position sensor that is going bad in one spot. When it gets on one bad spot the ECU will get a signal saying that the throttle is completely closed and cut off fuel.

Model T clutch adjustment

Check to see that when you pull the lever back, that the parking brakes aren't grabbing. Approximately straight up, and down with the lever, is the neutral position, then pulling it back slightly towards the seat will set the parking brake.

Also, push the low pedal in very slowly, until you feel when you hit the low speed cam. You'll feel it. There will suddenly be more resistance at this point. That's where neutral is. The pedal should move down about 1 and 1/2 inches. The manual states halfway, this may be incorrect.

Jack up the car, (Use chock blocks under the tires, and work on a hard, level flat surface), check that the parking brakes are not setting when the lever is in the neutral position.

And yes, your deduction is correct about when the clutch oil is cold. The clutch used is a 'Wet Clutch'.

No tail lights or brake lights/must start car in neutral

Look up at the top of the brake pedal under dash and you should see a switch hooked to the pedal with a LG/R and LG wire. You should have power on the LG/R wire then when you depress pedal it should have power on the LG then.
Another question does the 3rd or high mount brake lamp illuminate when pedal is depressed?
