SOURCE: my murray 17 hp 42 inch cut hydrostat mower will

Hydrostat transaxles are very picky like the trans in your car. It must have clean fluid and be full of fluid. I am not saying to fill that transaxle to the top but make sure it is to the top of the fill line. Also it needs to be changed every few years and keep it clean to help it stay cool. If it has a filter make sure to change it when you change the fluid in the transaxle. That fluid is nothing more than 20-50W motor oil.

Is the belt in place which drives the transmission?
The belt should run from a pulley on the engine to a pulley on the transmission....if you have a belt drive system (the most common).

Poulan Pro 300 42" cut

Likely a valve or check valve is frozen. Refer to your manual showing hydraulic circuits and it will probably be obvious where a blockage that prevents ANY oil flow to the drive motors could occur.

I am trying to get my 18.5hp 42" cut craftsman DLT3000 to move. The rod in the back is in, and the wheels are still locked up on the transmission. What would cause the transmission to lock up?

At the end of the rod under the battery there is a lever that bolts to the transmission you will need to spray with wd40 and tap it with a hammer back and forth until it starts to move then continue to oil it and move it back & forth with your hand , its stuck in the gear position. if you are looking to get it in the neutral position follow the above procedure these catch alot of dirt and seize up.

I have a Craftsman Riding mower 17 HP, 42"cut. It runs for ~30 minutes then shuts off like it's out of gas, but it's not. Won't restart for ~30 min. Can anyone help

check for fire to the plug after it dies....if there is no fire then its possible that the coil is breaking down and needs to be replaced.

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.

I need to know how to put gear oil in a 95 jetta.if you have pictures how to do that.

Jack up the car on the driver side. Then you need to take off the Driver side Tire. You will see a 17 hex Allen socket on the transmission; this is where the gear oil goes. On the bottom of the transmission is another 17 hex socket: this is how you drain the transmission fluid. The car takes (75w90 GL-4). I believe the capacity is about 2.0 quarts. But put in about 1.5 quarts first, to see how the car feels, and then add more later.
