My yth 180 wouldn't pull up a hill either. I replaced the belt, engine pulley and even the transmission, Cost was $700.00, and none fixed the problem. I finally found that the clutch/brake peddle was sticking just enough to not allow the belt not to allow full engagement. When I reached down and gave it a good yank back toward me, I felt a click and the peddle released. Yep, that fixed it. Hope this helps you and saves you the big bucks!

My 2011 Nissan rogue will not climb hills and won't go above 80miles and hour even though the check engine light did not come on. Is it the transmission fluid or spark plugs?

It could definitely be the transmission fluid. Check the fluid level when the car is running and up to normal operating temp. You should have a mark on the dipstick saying "hot-full mark". That is exactly where your fluid level should be. Make sure you put in the correct fluid type, and that you do not overfill it. If it is not shifting like it should, then it could be time to change out the transmission filter. Not a difficult job, and a lot cheaper than a new tranny...

I have a 42 inch craftmas mower and the fluid is leaking from the hydrastatic area, can I replace it with transmission fluid.

If you transaxle is leaking badly adding oil may not help long term,if you remove the back hitch plate there is a allen wrench plug or a rubber vent hose, you can add oil there,measure down from the top of transaxle and fill to within 1.5 inch of the top,always allow 1.5 in of air space in top to allow for expansion. Add amsoil or mobil 1 synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50. Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic oil.

Far as I know the warranties are not transferable. Some hydrastatic transmission fluid can be checked by removing the battery and underneath there is a place to put the fluid and to check it. But not all models or makes gives you this option.

Need to change manual transmission fluid

pull the lower plug from the transmission, it will be on the bottom or the side on the bottom. replace the plug after draining and remove the fill plug wich is about half way up the side of the transmission. use 75w 90 gear oil in the trans.
good luck
