Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower

1 Answer

Super Bronce is Jerking while going forward

I have replaced both drive belts and the problem remains. I see a lot of gear oil on the rear differential so it's my guess that something in the rear differential is causing the problem.

In turbo hydro 700 why would forward gears make the rear wheels go in reverse


Your differential is upside down. Ford model T's had the same problem. It was possible to mount the rear axle upside down which made the car go forward in reverse and backward in forward gears.

Rear End Whine Under Load


Replacing gears and/or bearings in a differental is not an easy project. You'll need a press. The positioning of the gears requires a great deal of precision. Shims are used to acheve the correct setting. Preload setting on the pinion bearings is critical. I would recommend leaving this one to the experts.

II think I would try some Motorcraft XL-3 Friction Modifier. That is what Ford uses to fix the same problem in their Limited Slip differentials. You can find it online or at any parts house that carries Motorcraft.

When I make a turn going 30-35 mph and the weight of the vehicle is at maximum force, I hear a clunk from underneath the vehicle. What could be producing this sound?


Try changing the gear oil in the rear axle. Be sure to add a Slip Differential Additive paste to it (Autozone sells the paste and the gear oil).
The noise is coming from the differential in the rear axle and you will hear it when the vehicle changes from one direction to the other. Drive a hard zigzag line in a vacated parking lot and you should hear it at each shift in direction.

Change the front axle gear oil also if it had never been down. Usual interval for both is 30,000 miles.

Sounds like you have a limited slip or " Posi-Traction" rear differential, if this is the case than go to the GM dealer and ask them for a bottle of friction modifier oil for limited slip differential. This stuff is pure whale oil that helps to lubricate the clutches in the differential. After adding the lube find your self a big empty parking lot or other paved surface and drive the vehicle forwards then backwards in a slow figure 8 patern, turn as tight as you can each way, this will force the clutches to work and help limber them up. The differential might make some crunching sounds, but the noise should quit as the lube gets in and does its job.

Where is the fill plug on the diffirential on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo"


How to Fill a Rear Differential
You may need to add fluid to your differential due to leaks or changing seals, or it may be time to change out the gear oil completely. Either way, it's just a few steps to fill the rear differential and get your vehicle back out on the road!This article will explain how to fill a rear differential. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions and Things You'll Need:
  • 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension
  • 2 quarts gear oil (gear lube, differential fluid)
  • Side cutters
  • Oil drain pan
  • Shop rags
  • Flashlight or shop light (optional)
  • Lock tight (optional)

Filling a Rear Differential
  1. Be sure the car is raised on four jack stands and is level. It will be more difficult to fill the differential if you've only got it raised in the rear.
  2. Place an oil drain pan underneath the plug to catch any leaks or drips. Keep shop rags handy for any spills.
  3. Check your service manual for the amount of fluid your differential needs, if you're completely refilling the system. Two quarts should be enough in most cases.
  4. Remove the spouts on the gear oil containers. Peel off seals, then replace spouts. Use side cutters (or any cutting tool you've got handy) to clip off the top of each spout.
  5. Remove the differential fill plug using a 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension. (Some models may require a hex key or screwdriver, but the 3/8 inch is the most common plug design.)
  6. Take the gear oil container and fit the spout into the fill hole. Pour the fluid inside. You can gently squeeze the bottle to speed the process. Repeat with a second bottle if necessary.
  7. Fill the differential until the fluid starts draining back out of the hole.
  8. Clean and replace fill plug. Use lock tight (thread locker) to help seal if desired. You can see my eHow article "How to Replace Rear Differential Fill Plug" (video) for more information.
  9. Take the car for a drive around the block to get the gear oil moving. When you return, check underneath for any leaks from the fill plug or differential cover.
Hope help with this.

Differential noise when gear is place. in reverse or drive.


If it's only happening when you initially place it in those gears before going forward or reverse, your U-Joint in the rear is going bad. Replace both when you replace the one. This way you don't have to go there again when the fron U-Joint decides to go out. Cheap insurance.
