Transmission won't engage

My Crafsman FS 5500 24 Hp Intec starts up fine and stays running but will not go forward or reverse. However the cutting deck engages and works fine. What is wrong?

I had this happen and found the Transit Position had been changed. The lever at the rear is where I found the problem. Once I moved it to the other position it worked. That might be what happened.

Kubota T1570 transmission will not engage in forward or reverse. Starts fine and runs fine, mower blades engage, but no movement. Worked yesterday, not working today. Any ideas? Thank you.


Only problems that come to mind are rather obvious ones. My first guess would be a broken HST belt- the one from the engine to transmission- OR part of that belt assembly (idler pulley, slipped off a pulley, broken tension spring). Another possibility would be the pedal linkage. Maybe a pin fell out of that somewhere and the linkage isn't engaging the transmission.

96 ROVER DISC. Has strong reverse - won't engage any forward gears. Fluid seems full even when warm.


Make sure the 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn't slipped out of correct spot to get you moving forward.

Can anyone help? My Cub Cadet LT1045 won't move (foward/backward).


Hi, check that the drive belt, pulleys and shafts are all ok and that they are actually driving the transmission, hopefully you will see the problem. If the transmission is driving ok and the fwd and reverse lever is functioning as you said, the transmission may have failed. Also check the hydro release lever is functioning. Regards Phil.

1999 FORD EXPERDITION TRANSMISSION WON'T MOVE FORWARD BUT MY REVERSE WORKS FINE WHAT I NEED TO DO


You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE


Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

No power when drive is engaged


Hi
Check your drive belt and the tensioner pulley that holds tension on the drive belt. Its possible for the tensioner pulley to be sticking and not putting enough pressure on the drive belt causing it to slip.
Grab hold of that tensioner pully and make sure it moves in and out freely against the drive belt.
