    have you checked all the electric connections low fluid will not kill the motor. wont angle or up/down or both check ground wire for corrsion. use volt meter at hot wire on motor make sure you have 12 volts.

    Bingo, I'm willing to bet a lb. of Mackinac Island fudge that that is your problem. It would be nice if you can find a service that rebuilds them around you.
