My 825i gator recently started running bad. Starts very hard like it needs a choke when its cold. 3-5 minutes of hitting on 1-2 cyls before something kicks in and it smooths out. When warm it won't start. Acts like its flooded. Have to wait for it to cool way down again. I drained and put new gas, put in fuel injector cleaner, new gas filter, new air cleaner, checked plugs and they are torch type and look ok. Even when running good,it just don't seem to have the power it did. My nearest dealer is over 50 miles away and has a 2 week waiting list. I don't have access to a code reader to see what comes up. can anyone help

You need to get someone to connect a scanner. Check for codes and look at the fuel trim and other parameters if necessary. Problem is that it is proprietary and the JD dealer is about the only pace that will have a usable scanner.

Hope this helps.

Can you tell me what you did to rectify the problem, ours is doing the same thing and I have done all the same things that you have done. Thanks!

Unfortunately it’s very common for first time posters not to complete their thread with a resolution.

hopefully the OP will respond and you can report back if successful.

good luck!
