Club car precedent 2005 starting problem
 
I bought a second hand 2005 precedent club car. It a has intermittent starting problem. I opened the carburettor and gave it a good clean up, changed the fuel pump but cart still start and losses it and not start at all. I took out the GCOR and tested the continuity on both the white and black wires and resistance it gives me 0.1 ohms. Turned the arm hole with a screw driver continuity is fine and ohm reading 0.1 as well not sure what to check next.

when it doesn't start you just need to find out what it missing:
Spark
Fuel
Air
or Compression

I had my mechanic check the fuel supply. We made a gravity feed pipe to supply fuel and the car ran very well. Then we thought it could be the fuel pump which caused me some few bucks. But the cart continues to br-br-br. Then it doesn't start.

So when it doesn't start what are you missing?

I am still busy with fault finding. So far it looks like my battery might be on its way. when I push the gas pedal it drops the voltage to below 11.8. I will change the battery this afternoon.

But I have also noticed lot of grass in the fan housing. I am hoping that is not also acting as a braking system there. Not sure if I have to remove the exhaust pipe to get there because of the limited space.

Motor will crank with 11.8 volts. This is a very simple motor to figure out the problem

Guys while I was busy with the fault finding I noticed some debris in the tank. I drained the tank this afternoon. Will leave for the night to dry out. I could tell from opening the suction pipe that the pipe before the pump has been dry for some time. I will strip and clean the pump and carburettor tomorrow in case some dirt has already accumulated in there.

Will keep you posted.

Still sitting with fuel suction issue. The pump is not pulling the fuel. I will check the oil level in the crankcase.

Problem solved. I am up and running. Apart from the dirty system during the cleaning my mechanic packed the pump wrongly. There are 2 slots on the pump's base and the middle section always make sure the are in line when assembling the pump.

This was a costly fault finding but no regrets thus gave me an opportunity to learn "my boy".

Problem solved. It was the ignition Coil. Replaced it this weekend and all is good no more intermittent running.:lol:
