Try running it to warm up the fluid, drain the old stuff out and replace with a quality hydrostat fluid recomended by the mfg. Also change the filter if so equiped. you should be able to get ahold of the mfg. online or start here

I have a poulan riding lawnmower dont know exactly what one it is at a camp but the question i have is why does the tractor jum when you leave the clutch out especially in 3rd or4th gear.h

If the tractor lurches or jumps when you let the pedal out it could be one of a few problems. The most likely is a chunk missing out of the belt. Lower the deck all the way down and look under the chassis for the ground drive belt and inspect it. Next it could be loose or bad pulleys. If the transmission input pulley has worked loose or one of the plastic flat idler pulleys has froze up and burned a hole through it then it could be making things skip. Again with the deck all the way down lock the brake. this will slacken the belt. Reach up and grab the 2 flat idler pulleys and check that they turn free and feel for grooves worn into the flat. Grab the transmission pulley and wiggle it. Is it loose? Turn it. Does it feel chunky or smooth? Lastly, it could be a worn input shaft bushing causing the worm and pinion to slip. Especially if in your last test the trans pulley felt chunky. While the brake is locked slide the belt off the two idler pulleys so the belt stays slacked with the clutch out. Put the transmission in gear and turn the transmission pulley by hand. The tractor should start moving. Keep turning by hand and see if there is a spot that it slips. If so you will have to remove the tranny, dissect it, and replace bad parts. Input shaft bushing kit is about 50 bucks.
Hopefully its a worn belt... one last thing just came to me... check the drive pulley on the crankshaft. If the pulley is bent in a spot. Say; from trying to force a new belt on past the belt guides. Then the pinched spot will grab the belt every time it comes around cause a lurching.

Put Lawnmower on its side and changed blade. Put

Most likely you have flooded the cylinder with oil. You can try this and see if it helps you out.

Remove the spark plug, clean and dry it with carb cleaner, let dry, spray carb cleaner in the spark plug hole and thoroughly flush it out. Let is sit this way for about 20 minutes. Reinstall your spark plug and see if it will start up for you. If it does you are done if not go to an auto parts store and buy some starter fluid. Spray the fluid with just short burst into the air cleaner. Try to start it. Repeat and it should stay running in a couple of tries.

My poulan riding lawnmower will not roll. The name is Keith..and it sounds like the neutral rod on the back of the mower needs to come out further to fully disengage the transmission so you can roll should have an adjusting nut on the rod..and i would turn the nut in a couple of turns until the lawn mower will roll..i hope this will help..if not please write me back
