Default Re: 98 gas EZGO runs then sputters out

***Updates***

After being gone for a week on vaca I've been home and taken the cart out for a few. I played a round of 9 holes and made it home.....BUT, it would try to not fire and or sputter every time I would go. Every time. If I play with the choke I could get it going and it would take off. I took it out last night and still the same, so it's consistent.

So I know the wiring can still be cleaned up with replacing some corroded wires, but now it also seems to have some kind of fuel/carb issue too...... I think, hahahaha

If pulling on the choke helps it out, then pull the carb and clean it really well. Blow all of the passages out with compressed air and let us know. That should take care of that, unless it's REALLY cold (which rarely ever happens here) I never need to touch the choke on any of mine.

Hey yo guys-

Iíve cleaned the carb, it was pretty clean inside to begin with. It still needs to have the choke pulled slightly on every start. I bought this cart through a local shop. Last week I got the number of the previous owner. He said that he had the same issues too and the shop I bought it from had cleaned the carb before and it helped for a while then needed the choke pulled on every start too.

So what should I look at next? New carb?

Many times the main nozzle will be stopped up. It is almost impossible to remove so no way really to see if it is clean.
If your compression is good ( 170 psi is best ) and the intake valves are not showing more threads than exhaust when you adjust them then yes buy a new carburetor from Ezgo. Not aftermarket one.

Default Re: 98 gas EZGO runs then sputters out

Well guys I'm back again. Cart has been running pretty darn good since I fixed the wiring problem. Now it's starting to crap out again. So what's happening now as it was before, sputters out and dies then won't run again. Different issue now is the plugs are getting fouled. Take them out and they are soaked. Clear too much fuel. Funny thing is after I fixed the wiring issue it ran great for many rounds before this started happening. Now it seems like I can't even get a round in without it crapping out. Anyway need to limit the fuel flow into the carb or rather limit the fuel into the cylinders is what I'm thinking. I assume it's just one of the screw adjustments on the carb? Or do I need to pull the carb apart and change some jets?

On another note sorry to hear you haven't gotten that thing sorted out styles.
