Thank you Mr.FixIt. I appreciate your help. I don't know if this makes a difference but our mower is the Poulan Pro self propelled with electric key start. So the wires that our dog chewed up are the ones that connect to the key start. Can those be replaced? We are in the military and stationed overseas so we don't have a local repair shop to go to. Do you know of any websites that we can order the new wires from? Thanks!!

Good question ... what kind is it ... should I guess? Some take 30 weight non detergent oil ... others take transmission fluid type F or GM or other "flavor" (specialty oil). Some fill under the seat others fill else where. Are you sure it is hydraulic? Have you looked for the fill tube? Do you have the instruction/owners manual anywhere? I would like to help you and maybe I have, inadvertently. Please don't put anything in until (1) you know what kind of fluid is suppose to be put in (2) you know it is low and requires additional fluid (3) don't operate it until you get the answers to (1) and (2). Is there a dealer for your unnamed make and model in your town? Have you called them? Maybe you should give them a call ...
If you have additional information to offer which will help me to help you solve your trouble, please post it. Thank you.
Me to ... you want help but you don't give any description of the mower! There must be a way to remove it ... think about this ... someone put it on! so it has to come off! You may have to disconnect part of the deck, I don't know ... You may have to cut the old one off and pry the new one on (on cheaper models) I don't know, you will not tell me what we are working on. It SHOULD be reasonably easy - some company made them by mass production - they wouldn't make it hard for them to assemble (unless it is a really cheap one).
I suggest you get on the ground and study the deck ... look for levers or tension pulleys. Make sure the mower is OFF, OF COURSE. ALSO, disconnect the SPARK plug as turning the belt COULD START THE MOTOR!!!!!!! I don't know what this machine is so I am stressing the safety aspect of what you are about to do!!!!!!!!!
If you will post additional information on this machine, I may be able to offer more suggestions.
Use hydrostatic fluid. Consult your owner's manual for information. Do not use hydraulic transmission fluid. If you do not have your owner's manual, you can find one on www.managemylife.com Just go to that site, click on manuals and enter your make and model number.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
check out fuses,relay first. low charge ,bad cycle switch. or the dreaded fluid sensor, ts in the liquid line, and the freon has to come out to replace it. or the coil in the clutch could be bad or air gap of the clutch to wide, check with a test light for power and ground at the compressor clutch
its a lot i know.. what can i say , its a/c and its a/c on a caddy. have fun and if'n i was of help leve a coment or vote .. try to BUY USA made products . thank you Jay.. mr fiXit
the mower seems to be running fine now. after i read a solution to another readers question on a different problem, thought i'd give it a try. i took off the bowl. it was filthy, so i cleaned it out, checked the float, and put it back no. then reconnected the fuel line, and cranked her up. problem fixed so far. thanks fixit guys.
Mr. Fixit...excellent advisement...really appreciate it. It got my grass cut today. Big yard! Problem is, when I finished, now I have the same problem with it not running...what do you think: take the Toro to the junk yard or what?
