Everything was good until the oil & filter change? Are you sure it is full? It took me forever to get my FF20's full again.

i can see the fluid in the hose in the back.when i got it it was dry because he had the wrong filter on it .i got the real filter and filled it up .about 5 quarts.it moves but slow?

I hope it's a simple solution. If it's full, then I have no other help. But it sure sounds like it is low.

I had to take the fender pan off mine and get down to the vent hose that goes to that canister. Unhooked that hose (at the canister) to let the air out as the canister vent is real slow letting air out. If you did not remove that hose, there is the possibility you don't have enough fluid in it. How much did you get in it? Should hold close to 2 gallons.

They hold all most 2 gallons if I recall, can you get to the checking plug at the back???
If you take that out and fill it until it glops out, replace the plug and give it an extra cup, you should be just fine.

You can't get to that fill/check plug, Keith. It has the fill tube hooked to it. The vent at the top is hooked to a canister by a hose.

I don't remember how much I put in mine, the manual says 7-1/2 qts.
