The first thing you want to do is after making sure the oil is full to specifications, deadhead another hydraulic function and at the same time slowly engage that drive in either direction. Also try the opposite drive. It is likely that it is air bound. The other potential problem could be that the drive itself has failed. You can check for excessive case drain pressure by disconnecting the small case drain hose and running a hose from the drive motor case drain port into a 5 gallon bucket. You would then pin the track or push up against a loading dock or equivalent to prevent travel. Then you would slowly engage that drive motor you are testing. You should see a very low volume of oil coming from the case drain. If it comes out under high pressure or volume it means that drive motor has excessive internal leakage and is faulty. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.
