Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
If you are still in need of assistance, please let me know.
I would like to clarify something. Is your shift lever actually shifting into neutral position?
If you shut your engine off. Will your mower roll after your transmission shifts into neutral?
How old is your mower?
Thanks for this information. Once your mower is pulling again, does it pull as strong as it should?
These are troubleshooting questions ...
You and I need to determine if our problem is caused by a problem within your transmission, or if our problem is caused by something that works with your transmission.
I would like for you to try something, when you have an opportunity.
Drive your mower until it goes into neutral. Immediately after your transmission goes into neutral, shut your engine off, then try pushing your mower. Let's see if your mower will roll freely.
This will give you and I a starting point, to help figure out what is causing our problem.
