Default Need Help! C.C. Revs up almost to top speed then shuts off then revs up again.

Hi everyone, I'm helping a buddy out on a 96 C.C. and when it revs up it almost gets up to speed and then shuts off then it revs up and shuts off again. It just keeps doing this over and over. I have removed the rev limiter Ground, and checked the other grounds and they are all OK. Could this be the Governor causing this or even maybe the coil going bad?

I was wondering if I loosed the arm to by pass the governor if this would help thigs out and make it run smooth?

its possible its gov. related only thing you can do is turn it down see how it runs and adjust from there............................

I'll try that this morning Shadow mam. I'm not sure if my post makes sense on what it's doing. I am a EZ-Go man and when mine was acting this way it was the gov. linkage and throttle linkage all outta whack. but this one doesn't seem to have an adjustment on the governor cable to carb cable.

Zip tie the springs together to prove your point but if you plan on leaving both the governor and limiter disabled I would urge you to get a tach installed and keep the motor under 4500 rpm for everything but short bursts.

It has a gov. but it acts like just about the time you reach a good speed it kicks in then it takes 4 or 5 seconds and starts to speed up again. It reminds me of some one spraying a burst of starting fluid in the carb then off then on again.

I will try the zip tie first.

have you tried spraying around the head gasket to see if speed changes? very rare with C.C. but not out of the question also around carb base make sure no gaskets ripped......you know how e-z gos did that.............................

Yes what a pain!!! Actually I finally got a seconded to look it over this morning. You where right it was the governor way out of whack! Is it ok to run with the gov loose like the ezgo as long as the rev. limiter is working?

so gov was out of wack.....yes you can run it just don,t over rev it 3900 rpm,s is safe i think the limit is 4300 rpms........if your not sure buy yourself a tiny tach.......i take it that you didn,t mess with the gov? someone else did.......i see that a lot and when it runs like crap they quit and blame it on something else..........................
