SOURCE: NO FIRE ON KOHLER 12.5 OHV MOTOR
All wires on a small engine except for the spark plug wire are to ground out the spark and stop the engine. Except a few for accessories and on generator/welders.
Knowing that, there is a small main wire that comes from your coil and leads to all other wires. It usually sits under your gas tank and runs toward your on/off switch or ignition switch. To see if it is any off your shutdowns gone bad, disconnect this wire. If still no spark then you either have a open in this wire or your magnito (coil) is bad.
If it starts, then unplug all the wires going to the kill wire and hook them up one by one until you find the one that kills the engine. Follow the wire to it's source looking for breaks in the line. If no breaks then the switch is out of place or bad.
Note: check your oil level first. Most engines come with a low oil sensor that will kill the spark if the oil level gets too low.
To check is your magnito is bad or you have a short, disconnect the wire at the magnito found by the flywheel under the flywheel cover. Tuck this wire out of the way and try to start your unit. No spark then you have a bad magnito.

The fluid in the transmission is a multigrade oil. sometimes you can change the oil by removing the transmission partially or entirely and change the oil to a heavier grade like 15W40 or 20W50, the transmission has a vent mechanism on top that is where the oil would be extracted or drained from and then refilled, the level at full cold is 1" to 1 1/4" below the bottom edge of the inside of the vent pipe or plug boss. some of these had a flat vent plug, some have a hose with the vent in the end attached at a nipple and still some older units had a reservoir like on the larger tractors. The reason your trans is slowing is due to wear in the hydraulic pump face.
