How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

To fix a riding mower that won`t move forward or reverse, you should fix the battery, check for the air filter and carburetor, inspect the transmission for damages, replace the damaged drive belt, and inspect the spark plug. You must also replace the tires, and adjust the wheel position.
If there is interference with the brake/clutch pedal, your gear shifter may not come out of the neutral position. Inspect the linkage between the clutch/brake assembly and wheels, as well. Any damage or obstructions should be repaired immediately since this also causes a safety issue.
Failure of any mechanical component, a broken hose, or clogged filter will cause tractor hydrostatic transmission problems. But the most common issue will be the oil itself. In the transmission section of your operator`s manual, you`ll find a section that covers oil viscosity.
Grinding gears, starting and stopping during operation, and the wheels not rotating with the pulley are common signs that your mower`s transmission is breaking down.
Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
A bypass lever is located on the back of the frame, pull out on the lever to move the mower and push it back in before mowing.
To push a riding mower equipped with hydrostatic drive it will be necessary to disengage the fluid drive by activating the manual bypass valve. The activation of the manual bypass valve will allow the axles to roll freely by diverting the flow of fluid around the drive pump system.
When you push in the clutch pedal, you disengage the clutch. That action “disconnects” the engine from the transmission.
The transmission uses a flywheel, pressure plate and clutch to engage and disengage the engine from the transmission. The flywheel and pressure plate are connected to the engine. The clutch is sandwiched between them and is splined to the transmission input shaft.

ANSWER : Sounds like it is leaning out, running out of fuel. That can be the strainer at the gas tank, any fuel filters it has. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and see how good the flow is to it, and check for water. A new spark plug never hurts.
