Customer Question

i have a troy built lawn tractor--tuffy/pony--after driving it for a few minutes, it feels like something is stopping it from moving forward or reverse, you have to put it in higher and higher gears to keep it moving, just had the "tensioner" replaced and now it is doing the same thing, what can I do?
