The hydraulic deck lift lever is sticking both up and down. It wants to stay up when going up and stay down when going down, it won't return to a neutral position. I don't know if it's worn out or what. Anyone have any ideas before I take it to my dealer? I sprayed some lube on it, but it didn't really help. Thanks for any help.

In most hydraulic control valves with auto return there is a detent ball and spring, These are most likely rusted/pitted causing it to hang up. The fix will most likely be a new complete valve assembly.

Ok, that's what I was thinking. I will consult with my dealer. Thanks for the info.
