Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello Gerry. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
I would like to ask you some troubleshooting questions.
Did our problem occur suddenly, or gradually, over a period of time? We can continue from here. Thanks!
Thanks for your response. Do you have the same problem, when backing up, in reverse?
Thanks for this information. Have you checked your drive belt? If it is loose, worn, or slipping, this could be the cause of our problem.
Your new drive belt should be tight enough, as long as the running surfaces of your pulleys are not worn. Your transaxle is very likely ok. Your new drive belt will confirm this. How big is your trailer? Is it very heavy?
I would give the new drive belt a try. If this does not work, we can continue from here.
Gerry, you are very welcome! I do hope all goes well for you.
