Automatic Transmission is squealing and bogs down when under load
When going uphill, or when I have my bagger on, the auto trans squeals real bad, and the tractor slows right down. I have to bring the speed lever to a crawl make it move at all. It acts like a fluid problem in hydraulics. Is there a way to add or check?

Check the trans drive belt, most likely that, or a worn tension pulley. check easy things first. Try pulling back on foot pedal to give belt a bit more tension.
If the trans looks clean and no leeks start with the belt.

You should open the hood,put someone else in the car and have them rev the engine while you observe the engine because pinpointing it will really help.Even though you are not running the A/C,the compressor is still being turned by the belt.Also,right now I would make a diagram of the belt routing in case it breaks.Some cars do have a sticker with the diagram under the hood,usually toward the front.If you do not use your A/C much,the bearing may be hanging up as well as any part belt driven which you have not replaced and may be making it squeal.Also,if your compressor ends up seizing,and you do not use the A/C much,and is expensive to replace(which also happened to me),I searched and found another car with the same exact engine but was made with no A/C.I had a Buick and the substitute was a Chevy.Most of my answer is for future possibilities but for now just try to pinpoint it and go from there.Some cars just do squeal after time but you also had bogging and stalling which is not normal(obviously).Also inspect your belt.Check the edges for fraying.Check the width for cracks.Many small cracks fairly close together or a few large cracks a couple inches apart is cause for concern.If any of these are present,you should at least get a belt to keep in the car in case it snaps.I would put off replacing for now until you can figure out what is happening.My answers are usually lengthy because I try to inform,educate,and give almost every scenario which could happen so there is no surprise.
Good luck! Greg
Yes the trans can wipe out the crank bearings or the spacer behind the crank(forget what its called) it can let the flexplate move and the bolts can hit.That may be what your hearing. Does it still have good oil pressure?
