I have actually a 2009 gas club Car criterion golf cart. It has recently exhibited an intermittent trouble where the starts and runs fine once cold but after about 15 minutes of running and also the engine is hot it stops running. As soon as it exhibits this problem, I press the gas pedal, the starter motor transforms over the engine however the engine will certainly not operation on the own. After sitting and also cooling because that a couple of hours, the cart will certainly run again.I have actually disconnected the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor, associated a brief hose and also filled the hose through fuel however this walk not fix the problem. That would appear the carburetor float key is acquiring fuel but still the cart will not run.When the dare was exhibiting this problem, ns took the spark plug boot off the plug, put a new plug into the boot, base the brand-new plug come the next of the engine, and also pressed the gas pedal. The spark plug sparks for about 1/2 second but then stops sparking. This led me to think that is a spark difficulty so I changed the ignition coil. This is a dreadful job and whoever designed the bolts top top the pan shroud to it is in so terribly an overwhelming to access should be ashamed. Anyway, I replaced the ignition coil but this did no cure the problem.I put a bag of ice cream water top top the voltage regulator and let this sit for a couple of minutes but this did not cure the problem.Any advice on what might be causing this problem? Thanks.G"day,Vinish

The ignitor is developed into the coil ~ above 1997 and newer society Cars. I"ve checked out a lot of the cheap aftermarket coils be poor out the the box. Where did friend buy the coil? it could additionally be the RPM limiter bring about the golf dare to lose spark once the engine is hot. Welcome to priziv.org Golf cart Forum.

I purchase the coil/igniter ~ above Amazon. The was about $35.Since my last post, ns conducted another test. This morning ns tried to monitor the organization manual accuse for trial and error the engine kill circuit. This included the complying with steps:1) electronic came in maintain mode2) R/N/F manage in neutral3) Disconnect the engine death white/black cable at the cartridge connector situated next to the RPM limiter.4) crucial to on position5) press pedal to begin cartThe procedure in the service manual says:"If the engine starts to run, check the engine kill circuit because that a shorted cable or various other failed contents in the engine kill circuit."My engine started simply fine v the #3 over bullet connector disconnected and also both ends not grounded to anything. That seems like the warning above suggests the engine should not start. Must the engine start?This check procedure then has a warning that states with the black/white wire cartridge connector disconnected, the engine have to not rotate off once you release the pedal. However, mine engine shut off favor normal once I exit the pedal.Do these new observations indicate anything to look at further?

It looks favor the service manual says that you need to inspect for a shorted wire in the death circuit. Seeing that your golf dare runs fine until the engine is hot I think your difficulty is one of two people the brand-new coil or the RPM limiter. Both can reason the engine to shed spark and also stop running when hot.

While the difficulty was occurring, I got rid of the problem and the engine started simply fine by disconnecting the soil of the rpm limiter successfully removing this device from the circuit. This is a pretty strong indication the this machine is bad. I ordered a brand-new one for ~$85 top top Amazon and also installed it today. Time will tell if the cart will certainly run when the engine compartment gets hot.

I to be pleased come report that the brand-new rpm limiter has solved the problem. I had to take it the dare on a 30 minute non-stop drive this day going to the golf course in our neighborhood furthest from our home. The temperature the end was no too warm (around 82) yet still, driving because that 30 right minutes would have actually caused a difficulty previously.
