Question about John Deere Garden

Open Question

I have a 1987 John Deere 855 compact diesel utility tractor with the foot control 2 range hydrostatic transmission. Some times when I push on the forward pedal, and most times I push on the reverse pedal, the tractor will move a few feet and then seem to slip out of gear and emit a faint grinding noise. On another site, I saw a response to a very similar question from another 855 owner and he was told that the bolt on the driver gear had backed out, and that he needed to pull the hydro tranny and replace the bolt, washer, and 2 "O" rings. Do you guys have any other thoughts or ideas ?

try to service the old transmisson it may work.but if that does not work just replace the transmisson.
purchasing a new hydrostatic transmission is much advisable as its definately the problem of hydrostatic transmission with out any doubt .but i hope servicing the old works.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 1987 john deere 750 compact tractor 4 wheel drive, wont start

percussive maintenance my friend. Try banging on the solenoid and starter with a hammer while in the start position. Also, if you have a voltmeter, you can see where voltage is getting to and that will help you as well.

1981 John Deere 1050 Diesel Tractor - Engine will go to high idle by itself. You can shut key off and engine will eventually die. What would cause the engine to high idle? Afraid engine will lock up.


There are 2 types of governors on diesels. one is controlled from the foot and is fixed speed at the foot setting. The other is variable speed which will run to high idle if the setting is not changed IE on start it will idle ok but if you use a fast setting on a hand throttle say to warm up the motor it will run to high idle. I suggest that if you have not had a problem before then you should have a diesel pump specialist look at it as there may be a fault in the governor control.

My John Deere 4310 compact tractor hydrostat transmission does not work. I got on top of a tree stump and now it will not move. Trouble code light flashes one long then three short flashes. Please help.


You likely knocked a wire out of the forward or reveres potentiometers,which are located under the right floor pan and are attached to the foot pedals.If they are in place then they may have bee hit and now need to be re-calibrated,if so call your J.D. dealer.

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.
