First make sure the drive belt is intact(not broken) and routed as it should be. Check the idler pulley which places tension on the belt. Hopufully the link will work. Pages 24-25 show the drive belt placement and associated pulleys

SOURCE: Mower will shift into forward and reverse gears

either your drive belt has failed or your transmission has failed. make sure the drive belt is snug and not broken, do not do this while the engine is running. if the belt is good, then it is new transmission time. they cost more than a good used replacement mower.

SOURCE: engine runs but stalls when engaged

This sounds like a micro switch, or relay issue, it is not stalling it is being switched off, if there are some relays on the back of the bulk head replace them, they are just a push fit.

Why isn't something engaging when accelerator pressed?


It would help to know more information about the mower in question. Walk behind push mower? walk behind self-propelled mower/ Riding lawn mower? Lawn tractor? Or goat...just kidding...lol. The engine horse -power or cc's and make of the mower and engine. Anything happen before the problem or was it straight out of storage. Does the gas pedal feel normal? Could you be talking about the forward/ reverse pedal? These types don't engage by depressing them, they engage by releasing the pedal.
I'm going to guess you have a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor. The pedal for those types of mowers controls the transaxle ( rear wheels, transmission and differential basically). If the pedal move properly and it was working ok when it was stored, then check to see if you can push it with little effort. On most transaxles there is a disconnect rod to disengage the transaxle for towing the mower without damaging it. Pulled out for disengaged and in for engage. If that all checks out it could be very low on transmission fluid or the drive belt might be off or broken depending on which type you have. If it is low on fluid, you have a leak. Hope this helps.

Transmission not move forward backward


Probably. There may be a solenoid not working which is keeping the transmission from engaging the forward gear train but for it not to work at all is unusual.

HOW DO YOU DISENGAGE 4WD 1997 PATHFINDER


Hi Diamond, These vehicles do sometimes have a problem in disengaging the 4 X 4. Start up and drive it backwards and forwards slowly (3 or 4 miles per hour will do). Gently put pressure on the lever in the direction of the 2 high and after some time it will change. (If nothing has been damaged inside the box, which is unlikely) Regards John

Can anyone help? My Cub Cadet LT1045 won't move (foward/backward).


Hi, check that the drive belt, pulleys and shafts are all ok and that they are actually driving the transmission, hopefully you will see the problem. If the transmission is driving ok and the fwd and reverse lever is functioning as you said, the transmission may have failed. Also check the hydro release lever is functioning. Regards Phil.

Bike chain skipping


Bike chains are slightly different determined by amount of cogs on rear sprocket. If you havent changed the chain, adjust the tension of chain.If tension is ok-sprocket would be damaged(teeth worn,slightly rounded)but if same prob on different gear, chain tension/incorrect size chain is problem.
Hope this has been helpful..

Cadet LT 2042 worked fine changed hydro filter by lifting front with hoist to vertical. Lowered and topped off fluid. Now wont go forward or reverse. Makes no noise when pedal is engaged to move either...


You will have air in the system and will need purged. To do that you jack up the wheels to where they will turn freely then disengage the hydro and at an idle alternate forward and reverse for a for about 4 or 5 minutes. Recheck the fluid level and top off. Now engage the hydro and do the same forward and reverse for 3 or 4 minutes. You should have axle movement at this point. Hope this will help.

Replacing the clutch on a 1998 Saturn SL1 we encountered a problem after installation, The clutch would not disengage. The hydraulic clutch system and slave cylinder seemed to be working fine, we even...


It is very difficult for you to disengage the clutch by hand or with any leverage you can get outside the transmission. There is over 200 lbs of force clamping on the clutch disc.

If you replaced the clutch and took the slave cylinder out of the transmission without putting a brick under the clutch pedal or disconnecting the pivot arm from the pedal then you ruined the hydraulics. Buy a new PRE-BLED system from a local auto store. Generally this is the problem.

Either that or the clutch fork is bent or you installed the throwout bearing backwards (or simply fell off the fork which is not all that uncommon).
