The drive belt is probably off a pulley or is broken.

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the automatic belt tension was blocked with grass so it was not tensioning the belt correctly. It was quite difficult to completely clean it but it has been fine ever since.

My 2001 dodge durango will run, but once i park it it wont start again. If i play around with the shifter the truck will start, What is wrong with it?


Is this an Automatic transmission? If it is, and what is happening is that when you turn the key the starter will not engage, then you play with the shifter nob, and then it will start, then it is the
NUETRAL SAFETY SWITCH.

This is there to ensure that you cannot start the car in a gear, and will only start in either Park, or Nuetral. They go bad, just like anything else. Try starting the car with the gear-shifter in the NUETRAL position. I bet it will start.

Where the switch is located on this car, I am not sure, but it is not an expensive fix.

Deere 318 with Onan B43G won't start w/ starter engaged, but if the engine "catches" when I turn off igniton, it runs fine. I can only get it to start by pulsing the starter on and off--only starts when...


318's are known to have flywheel problems and poor engagement of the starter due to incorrect alignment of the starter to the ring gear.To check either of these things you need to take the motor out of the tractor to look at the ring gear,starter drive and starter aliggnment.Before you go through this pain replace the ignition switch or have it tested.p.s deere only supplies a replacement flywheel but a ring gear can be ordered through a case dealer if you get it for a stinner with the onan engine.

Check to see if rear axle is broke. Jack up the rear of the tractor, put it in gear and spin one of the rear wheels, the one on the other side should spin the opposite way. hope this helps

Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released


I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.
