cart dies on rough surface


New Member
I have a 1986 ezgo cart. I have a new carb,new selonoid,new volt regulator, rebuilt fuel pump,new fuel filter, and new gas lines. I have cleaned the fuel tank and checked the fuel pickup fitting and tube for leaks. I have also checked the fuel tank cap for proper venting. My problem is, when I ride on rough terrain (like gravel) the cart will begin to sputter and then die. Ater sitting for less than a minute, it will take off again for a short distance then die again. If im on smoother terrain like grass or pavement it runs fine. does anyone have any suggestions on what my problem may be.

It's hard to say. It could be a carburetor problem or a electrical problem. Check to see if it loses spark as soon as it stops running.
