Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
The engine starts and seems to run fine. Service has been regular and fluid levels are fine. Air filter is clean. When transmission is engaged, there is no forward progress for a few minutes until it seems oil heats up. When going forward or reverse, progress is slow and there is absolutely no power. The blades engage appropriately and seem to have power to drive them; just the transmission doesn't want to work.
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.
