I have a Craftsman YTS3000 lawn tractor that is about 5-6 years old. Last year, I started having issues with  slow to very slow forward movement which was worse when going up a grade. I noticed that the end of the bypass lever on the transmission was broken which allowed the lever to vibrate around. When I would turn the valve, I would have power moving forward. This year I replace the lever and had no improvement. I realized that the post that the bypass lever goes on spins around freely, so I wasn't sure if position of the post was the problem. I turn the post to several different positions, but had no changes. I then purged the transmission per the directions that I have and now have no movement either way. Any help would be appreciated.

Could you post up a picture or three of the parts and maybe a model number?

Welcome to GTT. Check our Manuals Section for info that you need. In general, you have to fix known problems before you can diagnose other problems. Good Luck, Rick

If it has the Tuff Torq K40 or K46, you are experiencing typical issues of slow down and no movement as they get some hours on them. .
