Club Car Hard to Start


Active Member
I have a 96 Club Car gas golf cart that I am about to give up trying to fix so I thought I would ask the experts. When the cart is cold and I push the pedal to start it it turns over fast but will not start. I then push the pedal in very slow and it will start and after I run it for awhile it starts very easy. I have replaced the micro switches in the box and that did not help. Any advice would be appreciated. I have also cleaned the carb. Bob

golf carts are cold blooded to start with and as they get a lot of hrs on them the problem gets worse. i'm not a CC guy but valve adjustment and compression play a big part in starting them when there cold

are you giving it a few seconds of choke when you 1st start? if not try choking it that might help or its just possible you have one with what i like to call a sweet spot where the cart dosn,t want to start unless pedal is pressed to that exact spot.........................

Try loosening the throttle cable in the electrical box. This will allow the motor to turn over before the carburetor opens and that will make your "sweet spot" larger.
