Does it make any difference if you are on a incline or flat surface? (Thinking fuel flow.....)When I make a sharp left turn the engine starts to die...
If I let up on the turn the engine revs back up.
I have had it happen on both level or sloped ground. Will check the battery tonight. Thanks!Does it make any difference if you are on a incline or flat surface? (Thinking fuel flow.....)
Its hard to imagine that there is anything near the steering linkage which could be getting pinched or bound up which would cause this, but I guess stranger things have happened.
It sounds like it is either somehow grounding out the ignition system or somehow hampering fuel flow, but I can't envision what would be close enough to anything in the steering arm or column which would cause this......
Any chance something loose is coming in contact with the battery terminals somehow? Or the plug wire(s)?
Looking forward to the solution on this one......
Did it matter the direction of the circle you drove, or was it consistent?Just did some testing. Drove in circles on my driveway. Neighbors must think I drinking too much. The driveway has a slight slope. When I was going uphill or down the engine would start to sputter. If I straightened out the engine would run smoothly. Now I need to drink more. Don't want to look like a drunken fool for nothing.
What would be the fun if we didn;t take this risk?:laugh:I could be going out on a limb here, but the GX345 has power steering (at least tractordata.com say so). Upon further investigation, this power steering is coupled (or part of) the hyrostatic system on this tractor. So, is there a deeper issue here? Maybe an issue with the hydro pump, or something like that? Seems odd that it would only happen when turning left, and uphill/downhill. Did you check your hydraulic fluid level?
Like I said, I could be reaching a bit too far and this is a very simple problem which I am over complicating...:unknown:
Tomorrow? That thing has headlights, doesn't it? After all, we have been waiting patiently.....:thumbup1gif:Ok, got the tractor back from the dealer today. They put on a new carburetor, a new timing module, and checked the hydraulic fluid. I haven't talked to the tech yet to see what else they might have done.
I will be cutting the grass tomorrow. I'll let you all know if the issues have been solved.
