JD '86 316 Onan engine shuts down when mowing, then backfires. It will restart but if the hydrostatic lever moves it will shut down again.

Blew snow all winter without any problem. Had tractor to JD 2x last summer and they could not diagnose/fix problem.

Riding mower no longer moves.


If this is a hydrostatic transmission, one of 3 things:
1. Drive belt off pulleys (recommend replace belt if so)
2. Belt broken (obviously, replace)
3. Hydrostatic transmission failed (least likely, but this is an expensive repair shop issue if so)


This happened to my GT1554 two weeks ago - fortunately, replacing the belt resolve the problem.

I have a JD X595 Diesel. This is what happens, say if I start it, then shut it down it will not start again right away. The first time it starts the glow plug light comes on. Shut it down and try to start...


Before you do anything grab a test light, remove the wire from your glow plug, put one end of test light on positive on your battery and the other end on the glow plug, if the light comes on than your glow plug is ok, if not replace, otherwise you need to locate the relay/sensor that tells the glow plug when to go off/on which is more than likely the problem, you may be able to locate it by tracking the wire from the glow plug or your local John Deere service provider may be able to tell you exactly where it is over the phone.

JD Lawn Tractor L130. will not start


They have an auto shutoff for low oil, start there check your fluids. If Ok check for spark. Try full throttle choke off in case it might be flooded. See if any of that works and let me know.
