Hi!~ your engine has probably seized this meaning low lubrication against coefficient to friction metal to metal begins galling which is like welding your moving parts together. You might try pouring engine oil in the cylinders over night and see if the engine van break free, but irreversible engine damage may have already happened. Jerold Bryant (ASE) master technician.

How do I trouble shoot my Cub Cadet to correct the problem described below.

Sounds as if you have either bent the throttle linkage or there is something jammed in it holding the throttle open . I would look the motor and carb area over.

Should I be concerned about the oil pressure light flickering when I brake hard or idle?

Yes, the oil is the life line to the engine, without proper pressure or circulation the engine will die, no different than us humans. The reason why the light goes off is that the engine is running at higher RPM pushing more pressure to the sensor therefore it turn off the light. When the engine running at low RPM the oil pressure is low therefore it not enough pressure to turn off the switch. 1st. it cheap, replace the oil pressure switch and make sure the oil dip stick at proper level. If replacing oil pressure switch does not rectified the issue, the oil pump might be going bad and not pumping proper pressure. Replacing oil pump is a major job. remember, on any vehicle, if it run proper there should be no lights on and that is the reason why they put the lights there for a reason. Check and see you have a small oil leaks.

1st thing to do is run a self test of the trans for trouble codes, sounds like a problem with the electronics, may be a poor trans connector connection or a solenoid issue in the trans.
2nd if the oil pressure is low and by your description it is, don't drvie the car, you will burn out the rod bearings then a new engine is needed, yes it sounds like a oil pump issue, there is no easy pump to change, jack the engine off the motor mounts and it makes getting it out easier. Please give at least a helpful rating, we experts do this for free, just want to help folks like you with car problems.
