Troy bilt xp self propelled not switching gears

I have a 21" Troy Bilt XP mower that seems to be going slower and slower with the self propelled system. First it has 4 gears, 1-4 and it has not ever functioned correctly since I have had it. It was given to me so I can not complain. But lately it has been going slower and slower. When I switch the gears I can hear it make some kind of different noise but no speed increase or decrease. Any others came across any of this?

You need to remove a pulley to put the new belt on.

SOURCE: how do i replace a drive belt on a troy bilt self propelled lawn

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

Normally an indication of poor air flow. Replace air filter. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaned to ensure choke is free to operate. Go real slow in tall grass, some mowers don't have the torque to do tall grass, only use 1/2 of the deck width and have side discharge open.

What Oil do I put in a Troy Bilt xp series mower


They recommend using only SAE 30 oil or 5W-30 if you choose to use synthetic. Be careful. Most smaller mower engines only require about 20-21 oz. The Honda engine may use more. See gauge on side of oil bottle.
