Check for trouble codes to find out what is happening. To retrieve trouble codes,turn ignition to run for 3 seconds then off for 3 seconds. Repeat this. then turn ingition on and wait about 8 seconds. there will be a number of flashes (about 3 per second) from the check engine light then a 2 second pause then it will flash a code. There will be a 1 second pause between flashes for a digit more than the value of one and a 2 second pause between the first digit and the second digit. All trouble codes are two digits. After you get the trouble code, contact me and I can advise you what it is related to.

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

leaky head gaskets are the cause for the engine light. the rpm (tach) meter flutters mostly because of an ignition coil going bad and or the signal from the distributor.

Car runs greAt BUT FLASHES LITE PO300 P1781


P0300 is a random engine misfire code. P 1781 is a transmission code, but it refers to a malfunctioning engine speed signal (crankshaft angle sensor). A bad crankshaft angle sensor or camshaft angle sensor can cause the P0300 code. A large list of items can cause a P0300 code, but since you have both, I'd be checking the crankshaft angle sensor and the related circuit. Sometimes, the mounting screws loosen up, which can cause the sensor to not function properly, all the time. Get this fixed, because over a period of 4 to 6 months, this can destroy the catalytic converter in the exhaust system ($$$$)

Battery lite glows when pto is engaged after running for 5min


The charging circuits used on smaller tractors are generally barely adequate for the load presented to them, so it is important that the tractor engine is running fast enough especially when using PTO power. If your tractor has a tachometer on it, JD has an indication of the motor speed you should use when using the PTO. If not, it is generally pretty close to max. It should sound like it is running smoothly although fast, and not with whining or rough sounds from the engine.

Transmission problem


car out of cruise control flutters or runs rough from 45 mph to 55 mph and once over 55 mph runs smooth. I notice from 45 to 55 the rpm guage moves with flutter or rough running engine. when i put in cruise control it smooths out.
