Question about Garden

My troybilt lurches forward and you can't hold onto it. I bought it used and the belt was slipping but no lurching problem- After the shop put on the new belt. It lurches forward when you start to till. I think they put jet fuel in it or something!! LOL

This is normal for these. The belt slipping before absorbed this. The only real way to prevent this is to weigh the tiller down with large rocks, concrete blocks, something of that sort. They have been built much lighter since Troy-Bilt was bought by MTD, and don't weigh enough to keep from picking up and taking off when you use it. I have a small one, and I weigh it down with about 150 lbs of concrete and lead, and that does it.

I want to know how to tell if i need a new clutch as compared to a slave cylinder, car has only 99k, and i bought it as is, owner said it needs slave cylinder, how can i be sure????

Put the car in first and start it up. If the car want's to lurch forward then the clutch is working but not disengaging. Look toward the slave/master cylinders or even the pedal itself. Pontiac used aluminum clutch pedals and they bend over time, hitting the floor before giving you the full length of travel. This causes the clutch to not disengage. 50 bucks at

If the car doesn't lurch or the RPM's go up while in gear and clutch out, but the car doesn't go any faster then the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Good luck,

Lurches forward when put in first gear from neutral

Your clutch is not fully engaging. Tighten your clutch cable if too loose. Bleed the system if it is hydraulic.

2004 Camry lurches forward when stopping.

Sounds like the torque converter isn't unlocking quick enough. Drive at 45mph,keep foot on gas and use other foot to touch the brake and watch the tach to see if it speeds up,when converter releases. Check trans fluid level hot.If it is more than a couple years old,change. Use the correct fluid for Toyota and add a bottle of Lubgard. Have the throttle positon senor scanned and check any idle control circuits. Throttle Body may need cleaning.
