Page 8 in the owners manual above, shows the drive train. With engine off, is the drive belt tight enough it can't be slipped on the pulleys? If belt is tight, transmission may be slipping.
transmission parts link above, page 2, shows two points # ***** and # ***** , that can be removed to add maybe a cup full of 15w50 motor oil.. Basicly the transmission is supposed to be sealed and not serviced. A cup full of oil may be all it needs.
Did you see my response?
