im assuming you dont here any grinding, start by tightening the cable ( loosen the cable mounting bolt slide the cable towards the engine, make sure you leave some play in the cable so its doesnt engage constantly and re-tighten ) this is most likely your issue however if you re-test and get grinding you either need new drive gears and wheels, new transmission or possibly both, you said it does something just not powerfully this pretty much rules out your belt, highly doubtful its that worn out and if it came off of a pulley it would do literally nothing, however if you tighten it and the drive is almost normal but still weak you do have a worn drive belt

Here are a few things to check...
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:
NOTE: Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Make sure you mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel...And oil mix if your using a two cycle mower, with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
It may look good, but can just be hard enough not to pump the proper amount of fuel.
I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

SOURCE: My mower will start but
I am going to respond 2 times to this post. The first reply will be generic things to check.
First off check the oil level and make sure it is serviced to full.
If your having a lack of fuel (runing lean) you will need to check fuel flow at the carb fuel mainfold. It should fill a spray paint can lid in less than 10 seconds but teting flow rated of the main fuel line. If you have poor flow here... you need to check the fuel filter and the fuel tank outlet port for obstructions.
Good Fuel flow still shutting off.... remove the carb float bow and clean the debris from the bow' and the treaded area where the fuel solenoid mounts Additionally you will have to again remove the main fuel line and spray carb cleaner in the float needle area to flush out any debris through the fuel hose connection.
For the second response I need to know which engine is installed on your mower by MODEL number if you can locate it. (there are 3 engines) At least try to find the engine model number. If you can not locate it Brand and HP of the engine (I assume 22 hp) Thanks for choosing FixYa,

You have big problems my friend! You have blown a head gasket, or broke the rings around the piston. The gasket isn't as bad as the rings. But neither is a good sign. It may be time to get a new mower; sorry for the bad news..... :-(

well there could be a number of problems the 2 things i would do is clean out the bowl and clean the jets on the carb clean the bowl first and if that does not work clean the jets before u do that make sure to shut the gas off to clean the bowl u have to unscrew the one bolt on the bottom of the bowl then take electric parts cleaner or starter fluid and spray the whole bowl with it then put it back together the way it came off then turn the gas on and try it if it still wont start turn the gas off take the carb off and the little screws on the carb turn them in and count how many times they went in then remember that number. unscrew the screws and spray some starter fluid or parts cleaner in there and screw the screw in all the way then unscrew the screw how many turns u remembered and do the other ones then turn the gas on if it still does not start take out the spark plug get a lighter or a propane torch an get the oil and **** out of the tip of it be careful don't touch it it will be hot let it cool down then put it back in and try again GOOD LUCK!
