Question about Garden

1 Answer

Finally decided to follow the manual's recommendation and changed the transmission fluid (SAE 10-W-30) while doing an end of season overhaul. Engine runs fine, but no forward or reverse. Over the last several days, I've tried "purging" the system with rear wheels off ground, but no wheel movement in forward or reverse. Oil level has not changed. Replaced back idler pulley and installed new drive belt. Was really looking forward to using the rebuilt mower deck. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Tranny on this Simplicity Regent 500 15hp is a Tuff Torq K56.

Did you loose forward and reverse right after fluid change or was it gradual? Sounds like you have air in the system. I would jack up back end and leave fluid fill cap off overnight. Maybe lay a light rag over it to keep debris out, but with the cap off and back end jacked up it should help air bubbles find there way out. Then, replace cap, leave jacked up and try bleeding by forward and reverse. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks Layne for the suggestion. Forward/Reverse worked fine until the oil change. I suspected air in the system, but not to the point where the wheels would not turn at all. I'll follow your tip and get back with you."

    Removed the oil cap and kept the rear wheels proper up for last few days. Gave the wheels a turn or two each day just . . . well, just because. Put the cap on, reinstalled the battery and started it up. Still no wheel movement, so went thru the purge procedures again. Still no luck.

    Add a Comment A neighbor has suggested draining the oil out again and refilling from the bottom to force all air out. As soon as I can locate a "gear oil bottle" that will fit the drain plug hole, I try it. Thanks again for your suggestion, Layne.

    No problem at all. I agree with your neighbors suggestion, filling from bottom up to force air out. Let me know how it works. If not we will figure this thing out. Good luck!

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: MTD Lawn Tractor: Constantly shredding deck belt...

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

I agree with answer #1. But with the milage aspect, I would recommend having the entire trans overhauled. Given time and wear and tear, seals inside the transmission that helps with the hydraulic actuations to help the trans perform its functions, start to leak internally therefore causing drivability issues like what you are experiencing. Sometimes performing a transmission flush may do more harm than good due to old seals being washed out. If you decide keeping the car for a while, it might be a good investment to completely overhaul transmission. Your LT1 5.7L V8 is a very strong and long lasting engine under correct maint. Hope this helps you out on your decision and question.

How to change gearbox oil


gear + BOX
so is the transfer case, box. or the 5 speed stick box or?
what?
we drain it then fill it, to the mark.
on all gear boxes.
if A/T we RTM read the operators guide. for how to do it right,
most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

Where to add gear oil to manual 2002 kia sportage


For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid. It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.

What type of transmission fluid does a 1988 lebaron with a manual transmission?


Some early vehicles may be equipped with the A-412 manual transaxle. This unit can be identified by locating the position of the starter which is found on the radiator side of the engine compartment. If it becomes necessary to add fluid to this unit, SAE 80W-90 gear lube is recommended.
If your vehicle has the A-460 or A-465 manual transaxle (4- and 5-speed transaxles respectively), the starter will be next to the firewall. When it becomes necessary to add fluid to this unit, AFT+3 is recommended. On the A-520 and A-555 manual transaxles used in 1987-88 models, add SAE 5W-30 SG or SG/CC or the equivalent.

I need the oil viscosity recommendation for a 2008 Saturn Outlook V6... I think it's 5W30?


2008 Saturn Truck Outlook AWD V6-3.6L

Vehicle: Fluid Type Specifications
Engine Oil
ENGINE OIL TYPE
Look for two things:
1. GM6094M Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M.
2. SAE 5W-30 as shown in the viscosity chart, SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle. These numbers on an oil container show its viscosity, or
thickness. Do not use other viscosity oils such as SAE 20W-50. Oils meeting these requirements should also have the starburst symbol on the
container. This symbol indicates that the oil has been certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API). You should look for this information
on the oil container, and use only those oils that are identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and have the starburst symbol on the front of
the oil container.
NOTICE: Use only engine oil identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and showing the American Petroleum Institute Certified For
Gasoline Engines starburst symbol. Failure to use the recommended oil can result in engine damage not covered by your warranty.
GM Goodwrench oil meets all the requirements for your vehicle.
If you are in an area of extreme cold, where the temperature falls below -20°F (-29°C), it is recommended that you use either an SAE 5W-30
synthetic oil or an SAE 0W-30 oil. Both will provide easier cold starting and better protection for your engine at extremely low temperatures.
ENGINE OIL ADDITIVES
Do not add anything to your oil. The recommended oils with the starburst symbol that meet GM Standard GM6094M are all you will need for good
performance and engine protection.
