RickB is right about the internal pump. On the bottom of the bell housing is an access plate. Under that you will find a tube with a fitting on the end. That is where a diagnostic pressure gauge can be mounted to check the pump pressure (don't remember what it should be). A clogged filter can cause symptoms like this. Inside the transmission, at the bottom where you can't get at it, is a pickup tube with a screen on it (don't know of any way to clean it) that can cause this if clogged. One of the problems with leaving a tractor outside is that water can seep past the shift boot into the trans. Water mixing with the fluid causes trouble, maybe even ice. Anything else and yes, it can get expensive.

having done some research on the ford newholland parts , I see where there is the pick up tube and screen and two variations of the placement of the trans filter . owner stated that the tractor is currently outside and I have know way of knowing if it has always been stored outside and it is in a cold climate.

so has I understand it,the differential and trans share the same oil and it is used to supply the torque converter and the screen pick up is located at the bottom of the trans case. If it has been stored out side for some time that would make sense that the trans may have taken in rain water. further research as indicated that the 4500 shares many of the same shuttle parts with later built ford units . and the drive discs where also used on many john deere's also and many parts including the pump are available aftermarket.

I don't remember if the trans and diff share the same fluid, they may but I think they are seperate units with independent fillers. I could be wrong but you should check on that.
