No, It sounds like you are low on oil. there is a fill cap on there somewhere, might be a bolt, plug, but you can check it and fill it hyd oil. I had an old Wheelhorse, never had a problem with the hydrostat, worked great. Check it out, hope this helps.

If it's a hydrostatic transmission, I would have the transmission looked at. You may need to "purge" the system and check the fluid level.

The ones I've done called for the drive disconnects (the rod or lever which allows you to roll the tractor when the engine is shut down) to be in the flow bypass position. They also wanted the wheels off the floor, then the engine to be started, & the direction control to be worked SLOWLY to the front & rear positions 10-12 times. Then put the bypass valve back in its 'drive' position, fire the engine again & repeat the slow cycle of the direction control. The unit SHOULD be quieter now & perform better, but double check the oil level because expelling the air may have dropped it too low.

Reverse Gear Malfunction?


It's not a malfunction- this particular auto's idle rpm speed is low and it simply lacks the power to hold on the gradient of the slope- until of course you step on the accelerator pedal.

There is a very brief lag time from the moment your foot comes off the brake pedal to the time it reaches the accelerator pedal; such that by the time the torque converter is able to "perceive and respond' to your brake pedal to accelerator pedal movements, the car will- by the vary nature of gravitational force move in the direction it is being pulled until a force of equal or greater resistance is applied to either hold it in position or move it in the opposite direction.

By its very definition, a torque converter is a type of fluid coupling that is used to transfer rotating power (the engine) to a rotating driven load (the drive train)- that is the transmission, drive shaft, axle gears, and wheels that the tires are mounted on. [The transverse engine set-up is different than an in-line engine design, but the operating principles are basically the same]..

Automatic transmissions work on the same principle of a water wheel. As the current force of the water drops into the vanes of the wheel, it is converting that water force or pressure into useful forms of power as the wheel spins.

If the current flow of the water is so slow that the paddles of the water wheel are unable to detect any force, the wheel does not move- therefore no power-torque output.

Likewise, if the engine is idling too slow for the vanes in the torque converter to detect any push the transmission into power-torque output, then the car is going to freely go into the gravitational direction of the slope.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

Is it a hydrostatic drive and did you pull the pin that is located by the hitch. The pin should be pushed in in order to engage hydrostatic drive.

John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move


Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60
