Default G16 issue

Drove to the course and played two holes and the cart was running fine. I went to go to the third hole and pressed the accelerator and the engine turned over and ran, but the cart would just inch forward. Same thing in reverse. I borrowed a cart and started to push it home. After a short time pushing it started to work fine. I drove it home and cleaned the carburetor and took it back out a few days later and the same thing happened after a few holes. Had someone push me a couple hundred yards and started working fine again. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks for any input!

Will it run out of gear?
Is the engine running but just not pulling? If so it sounds like a clutch issue. Rollers worn out and sticking not letting it work right or maybe the belt also.

I had a similar problem. I did 2 things that might help you.
1) I turned the idle screw (i think it is) on the top of the carb all the way in and then backed it out slowly until i got a good running sound (this has yielded some minor back firing but it runs)
2) In testing I took out the air filter from my g16 and am now running it without a filter until the one I ordered comes in (seems to be okay).

I'm not saying that you have the exact same problem but maybe these might help you along.

The screw you are talking about is the air fuel mixture, if I'm not mistaken.

When I hit the gas it does turn over and run but just inches along until I get pushed for a short distance

When you say inch along, are you meaning the starter generator is moving it or is the engine running full blast and it's only inching along. I ask this as it could be a spark issue, the starter generator will inch it along if it is not firing.

When this occurs pull the boot off the spark plug and insert a small screw driver. Ground the screw driver to a valve cover bolt or other metal and see if u have spark when you spin the motor over.
Post back findings and we will go from there.

Don't use the screwdriver-trick on a CDI-Ignition,use a spark-plug.The CDI can fry from using a screwdriver or nothing at all.At least use a spark-tester(for $2 they are worth it.If the engine is just turning over it can inch along on the starter.I had an old Ez-Go 2-stroke that ran out of fuel,I drove it across my yard on the starter-only.Check the spark,fuel,and air-filter.See if it runs on full-choke.My Wifes cart kept just being suddenly dead,it was a bad ground in the electrical-panel to engine-harness.Replaced the wire,problem solved.Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info about the screw driver, I was unaware that would hurt it. I am still pretty new at this but after my last three day battle with my cart I know how frustrating it can be trying to fix one. I am still trying to fix a back fire concern on mine.
