Default 2011 EZGO whines and hesitates on start

Hello. My 2011 EZGO hesitates before going. It makes a whining sound and the oil light comes on. It had been backfiring for some time. I attempted to adjust the airflow screw (I think that is what it's called) on advice from a friend. It runs great, but in the past few days, it has begun to hesitate for sometimes up to 10 seconds before starting. It makes a whining sound before starting. The belts move about 2 inches like it is going to kick on, but then sits there and whines for 5 to 10 seconds before kicking in. It is not the sound of the belt slipping. It is more of an electrical sound. I have only been through 2 tanks of gas and just purchased the cart a little over a year ago. Any body have any clue what could be going on? It is a 3 bencher, so I don't even have a big enough trailer to take it to get looked at.

P.S. I have seen similar posts on here but it doesn't seem to be the same as mine. I have since adjusted the screw many times trying to find a correct setting (in case what i did "screwed" it up).. but nothing I do seems to work. What is the proper setting for the screw?

Thanks Lance.. Just so frustrating something that is such a luxury makes me want to bang my head of the steering wheel!

Did you look at the starter belt and make sure it is tight? Might also load test the battery.

The only consistent thing is that when I have adjusted the screw, it would get better or worse. Now I have adjusted it all the way from tight to loose and it makes no difference. Like I have said, I bought it new and have only driven it enough to go through two tanks of gas. Would I be having these kind of issues this soon if it wasn't something I did by doing the adjustment? I'm totally new to the EZGO world. We grew up with a Yamaha.

Also, how does one load test a battery? I'm not a mechanic, but love to learn how to do things on my own.
