The transmission is not easy to remove from the bike, as it requires you to first remove the engine then split the engine cases to access it. If you want to tackle this task, picking up a copy of the official service manual is a must.

Pronto M51. Why is it leaking oil?

hi James ,this is a power-chair right ? if so then the oil must be coming from one of the gearboxes, if possible run your finger inside the wheel where the axle goes into the gearbox ?

O6 Ave stalling

Hi James, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

James, there is a lot of things that can cause stalling, anything from. EGR Valve sticking in the open position. Vacuum Leaks large enough to cause stalling problems. WIRING issue where wires are frayed and grounding on the engine are brackets somewhere. FUEL PUMP that after heats up shuts down. Throttle Position Sensor that's BAD. and much more.

James each and everyone of this things and more will need to be diagnosed to find the one thing that's causing you problem. The engine size, make, model would help a little but stalling issues are hard to find. ONE THING THOUGH:

James, I want you to try one thing tap the Idle Air Control Motor and see if the idle changes. Next, tap on the TPS and see if the idle changes. Next, tap on the EGR Valve and see if the idle changes. Next, wiggle all the engine wiring and see if the idle changes. I hope one of these will lead you to the problem. Please visit my auto-repair website for further assistance here:

Hi there Got a grating noise on my pronto electric wheelchair. Almost like a drive belt (if they have them) is broken on one side.


No belts on the M91. Your right motor sounds like it has stripped gears. The gears cannot be replaced. The whole gearbox has to be replaced. Most stores will only replace the complete motor and gearbox assembly. Invacare may not sell just the gearbox.

When i squeeze my auger control, my snow thrower makes loud noise and kills my engine. what kind of problems do i have?

First check the belts that they didn't run off the pulleys and get jamed. Check the idler/tightner pulley see if it spins freely. Check that nothing is jammed in auger. Try to turn auger pulley by hand if it does not turn or is noisey you have a problem in the gearbox.

Gearbox oil change

There should be a drain plug either on the bottom of the gearbox or on the side of the gearbox at the bottom. Put in fresh 10w40 motor oil. There will be an oil fill screw either on the left or right side of the gearbox case.
