Question about Ariens Garden
First: check the battery because if it was dead then it might not be any good... Then after replacing said battery, hook a volt meter up to your battery and it should read over 13.2 and might even climb up to 14+. Anything over 15.5 or so will cook your battery. Your engine died because the safety solenoid in the bottom of the carb lost voltage... but I am only supplying what I would do in this situation by using your description.

if it restarts immediately, check the vent in the gas cap for restriction. also, the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor may be sticking or getting weak. if you have to let it sit for awhile before it retarts, the ignition module may be breaking down when it heats up. i'd bet on the gas cap or solenoid though

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.
