I have a yard machines mtd 18hp 46" cut riding lawn mower with automatic transmission. When I shift into gear it makes a noise and will not move. What could be the problem? Is there a way to check transmission fluid?

    My will go into gear, but there is very little power. The rear axel always made a whiny noise. Now it slows down to stop. I have the engine reved up and have it in 6sp high. I also smell burnt rubber. Maybe a belt? I don't know where to start.

The problem most likely is the shaft on which the interlock slides back and forth on inside the transmission. The yardmachines have a continous spinning shaft which ends in a bevel gear. The is an interlock plate which is connected to the Forward Reverse shift lever, this plate slides back and forth and either engages the forward gear or the backward gear. This shaft is most likely galled up, preventing everything from sliding the way it needs to. This is not a difficult thing to fix if you are somewhat mechanical. Disassemble the transmission and check if everything slides

No the hydrostatic trani's are sealed, if it fails then get a new one. But before that take a look underneath, inspect the lever linkage and the belt first. Good luck.

The tractor has a variable speed pulley for the 1-6 gears. You will want to check the top pulley on the shaft that is in the center of your tractor between the engine and transaxle. you may have broke the spring or adjuster.

Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It


Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt
