    I recently picked up a Deere Gator 6 X 4 about 6 years old. It has an auto transmission and is popping out of gear both forward and reverse. The only thing I tried was removing the linkage and putting it in gear manually. It moved about 20 feet and came out of gear with such force it shot into reverse. Does anyone have any ideas what I could look for? I'm thinking the tranny needs to be opened and explored. If this job is too tough, I'll think about taking to a dealer. (Ouch!!!!)
