Yard Machine Riding Lawn Mower Problems

My lawn mower is making popping sounds when turning corners. Also it seems to be jerking all the time like someone does when they are just trying to learn to drive a vehicle with a clutch. Any ideas?

Popping while turning sounds like the steering shaft bushing (bottom) is worn causing the gear to jump the sector teeth.

The jumping sounds like bad flat spotted belts, Check the condition of the belts and replace as needed.

Sounds to me like bad gears in the tranny.
