It takes 15w-50 or 20w-50 synthetic motor oil.Do not use hydrostatic fluid, it is too thin. Amsoil, Mobil-1, Purple Power or Lucas are four of the most popular brands. You have to suction it out from the plug on top of the transaxle and refill it there also to within 1.5 inch from the top,do not overfill,air is needed in top for expansion.

Try pulling back on the left foot pedal. This manually adjusts the drive belt tension and is a sign that the engine pulley has worn to the point the belt looses traction. A local repairman told me this last week and mine works fine now although in the very near future I'll need to replace the pully. Good luck

check two things, make sure the by-pass rod is pushed all the way in and the drive belt from the engine to the rear end (tranaxle). If both check out ok do not attempt to service the tranaxle at home. have thet serviced by a dealer.

This symptom is cause most often by the following.
Worn and slipping drive belt which is separate from the blade/deck drive belt.(replace the belt).
by-pass lever (rod) not fully engaged (push it all the way in)
travel pedal or linkage is faulty or out of adjustment ( take to dealer)
Transaxle is faulty (take to dealer)
